NSC Artists Capture 5 Awards 
During Sixth Annual Festival 

Duriag the sixth annual Hodges 
Gardens Arts and Crafts Festival, 
June 3, 4 and 5, Northwestern 
State College artists won five out 
of six awards in Sculpturer Crafts. 
Three of the awards, equal cash 

ing, twentieth century style — a 
little removed from, the days of 
the bark though the pirogue still 
maintains popularity in South 
Louisiana — proves funtime for 
college students in a rare mom- 
ent of leisure. Water sports and 
beach maneuvers rank high on 
the list of things to do for today's 
nausea-fighting mod. Here, a 
group of NSC students dash down 
the river in a race against the 
kind of summer boredom that 
fills the psychiatrisfs office. 

prizes, went to Ross Williams, a 
senior art major; Harry Price, 
sophomore art major; and Grant 
Kenner, an associate professor of 
art at Northwestern. 

The other two prizes, honorable 
mentions, went to Jack Gates, 
and Joey Sauce, junior art 

Williams and Price attracted 
particular attention by demon- 
strating on a potters wheel and 
by teaching several youngsters 
how to use one. 

Williams, Price and Sauce's 
awards were for ceramics. Gates' 
was for a carved wood relief, tit- 
led "landscape". 

Kenner, who was judge of scul- 
pture and crafts last year has 
won a prize every year he has 
participated. His award this year 


was for a direct bronze scul- 
pture, titled "Dove of War". 

Highlighting the annual fes- 
tival was an "al fresco" exhibit 
and sale amid towering pines 
and plantations of flowers in the 
rolling Kisatchie Hills of western 
Louisiana. A gay carnival air 
prevailed as artists painted and 
sketched vistas, and did on-the- 
spot portraits under a huge cir- 
cus tent on the shore of the 225- 
acre cresent-shaped lake in Hod- 
ges Gardens. 

Artists, sculptors, and crafts- 
men also explained and demon- 
strated their various media, in- 
cluding oils, water colors, pas- 
tels, gouache, caseiin pen and 
ink, wood and stone sculpture, 
ceramics, pottery, jewelry, china 
wall plaques and basketry.

What You Ought To Know About Kissing 

Those Oris Muscles 

To a kid, it's "Mush." To a 
girl, it's bliss. To the cold- 
blooded scientist it's simply 
"the juxtaposition of two 
orbicularis oris muscles in a 
state of Contraction." 

But no matter how you 
slice — or define — it, it's 
that pleasurable proposition, 
a kiss. 

Kisses come in a variety of 
sizes — ranging from the tiny 
peck to the giant economy smack! 
They can say "Hello," "My how 
you've grown," "Goodby e," 
"Goodbye — came again" or 
"Goodbye forever." They can 
make you feel like William the 
Conqueror; they can make you 
feel like Little Orphan Annie. 

Kisses have been known to 
seal men's doom. Where . — and 

when — did all this begin? No 
one really knows, although there 
has been a good deal of theor- 

From The Gods 

To the Greeks, according to 
information sent in by a research, 
kissing was a precious gift from 
the gods. On the other hand, the 
practice stemmed from the Devil, 
in the opinion of a few sour phil- 
osophers of the Middle Ages. 
Early naturalists thought of it 
as a "modified bite," stemming 
from our primitive cannabalistic 
past — hence, the saying, "I 
love you so much, I could eat you 
up." And Charles Darwin tried 
to trace the kiss back to the act 
of lower animals who seize their 
prey with their teeth. 

Whatever its origin, one thing 
seems certain: Kissing has a long 

history, during which it has also 
been known to have some "smack- 
ing" repercussions. Cleopatra, 
who was not really a raving 
beauty, according to historical 
accounts, used perfume made 
from flowers of the desert to 
make herself the most kissable 
woman of that day. Whether it 
was her Desert Flower scent 
that went straight to Marc 
Antony's head isn't certain, but 
Cleopatra's kisses, say some his- 
torians, sealed the doom of Rome. 
A Kiss . . . Then War 
Paris, Prince of Troy, prec- 
ipitated the ten-year-long Trojan 
War when he dared kiss Helen. 
One kiss led to another, and be- 
fore you knew it, one jealous 
husband was leading a Greek 
army to teach those Trojans to 
keep their lips to themselves. 

It didn't take men long to 
realize that kissing could get a 
fellow into trouble. An ancient 
Greek who was caught kissing a 
gal on the streets — wife or 
not — was subject to death. The 
Greeks, who were anything but 
slow-witted, did their best to keep 
tempation away from their fellow 
citizens. Husbands made their 
wives eat onions before they left 
home! However, while they didn't 
condone kissing in public between 
people of opposite sexes, in priv- 
ate it was an entirely different 
matter. In both ancient Greece 
and Rome, kissing became so 
popular as a form of salutation 
that it made perfumed lips fash- 

A popular 17th century belief 
was that spirits could kiss. Eng- 
lish preacher William Cartwright 

wrote in 1651, "Tell no more . . . 
That two unbodied essences may 
kiss, And then like angles, twist 
and feel one bliss." A different 
kind of essence in mortal kisses 
today, as modern women dab a 
touch of Desert Flower perfume 
behind their ears to help make 
a "husbandly peck" blossom into 
a full-bloomed kiss. 

In fact, a 20th century manual 
by Hugh Morris, called "The Art 
of Kissing," states: "Odors are 
as necessary to love as love, 
advisable to touch the corners of 
the mouth with perfume. But be 
certain that there is only the 
faintest suggestion of an odor 
and no more." 

During its long history, kissing 
has also given rise to a host of

Final Dates Set 
For College Draft 
Deferment Tests 

The fourth and final test in a 
series of Selective Service Col- 
lege Qualification Tests will be 
given June 24, according to Maj. 
Gen. E. W. Wise, State Director 
of Selective Service. 

Applications of registrants seek- 
ing deferments were to be obtai- 
ned from any Selective Service 
board no later than June 1. 

Several registrants were late 
in applying for the first series 
and may wish to take the fourth 
examination. Others who did not 
apply earlier and who wish to 
take the test now may do so, pro- 
viding registration was obtained 
before June 1. 

Several students who were re- 
quired to travel excessive dis- 
tances to take the first series, 
either because they completed 
their applications incorrectly or 
because of errors in assignment, 
are also eligible. 

The examination will be admin- 
istered at about 1,200 locations 
throughout the United States, 
Puerto Rico, the Canal Zone and 
District of Columbia. 

According to a report from 
Science Research Associates, the 
Chicago educational publisher 
administering the tests, more 
than 800,000 registrations for the 
first three series of tests have 
been processed. In the 11 years 
between 1951 and 1963, the Sel- 
ective Service College Qualifi- 
cation Test was given to only 
slightly more than 600,000 stu-

For Arts And Sciences 

Grant Approved For Building 

When Northwestern stu- 
dents return to school next 
fall, they will not only be 
moving into a new student 
union building, new dorms 
and a new cafeteria, but will 
also witness the beginnings 
of a $3,250,000 Arts and 
Sciences building, reportedly 
the largest single classroom 
structure in Louisiana. 

Construction for the new 
building is scheduled for July 1 
with completion expected in 14 
months. Official notification of 
the federal grant came from Sen. 
Allen J. Ellender and Sen. Rus- 
sell Long and Rep. Speedy O. 
Long, members of the Louisiana 
Congressional delegation. 

Architects have indicated that 
the new structure will be the 
largest classroom building for 
higher education in Louisiana. 
It will add classroom space app- 
roximately two-fifths as great as 
the total currently available 
throughout the campus. 

Air conditioned throughout, the 
building will include the latest 
audio-visual aids, including closed- 
circuit television in which North- 
western has pioneered since 1961 
and a pre-designed computer 
center. It will serve the depart- 
ments of language, mathematics, 
and social sciences. It is also de- 
signed for microbiology and some 
other work in science. 

The classroom facility will be 

constructed on a site near the 
present construction of the stu- 
dent union, men's dorm and wo- 
men's residence and dining hall, 
making up a complex designated 
by President John S. Kyser as 
the "new student city at NSC." 
Commenting on the much-needed 
classroom building, Dr. Kyser 

"The present climatic phase of 
major new construction at North- 
western State College will soon 
afford an opportunity to visualize 

the planning that has been carr- 
ied forward in recent years. In 
particular, the crescent of dorm- 
itories and dining facilities which 
has seemed to many to be some- 
what removed from the old cen- 
ter will soon come into focus on 
the new Arts and Sciences build- 
ing which is in close proximity 
to all of them. 

"This building, which archit- 
ects have indicated as the larg- 
est classroom building on any 
campus in Louisiana, is designed 

primarily to serve the depart- 
ments of languages, mathematics, 
and social sciences, which means 
that it will be meaningful to 
much of their work. 

"After decades of the lack of 
adequate facilities for these sub- 
ject matter areas, the fact that 
strictly modern accomodations 
are almost around the corner 
brings general rejoicing to fac- 
ulty members and will undoub- 
tedly be appreciated by future 
generations of students." 

ARTS AND SCIENCES BUILDING — Construction is expected to begin July 1 on the new Arts and 
Sciences Building here. This classroom building will be completed in approximately 14 months.

The Heavenly Art of Kissing 

THE GENTLE ART OF KISSING . . . Although it's only human for sweethearts to kiss, some scientists 
believe that man originally got the idea from watching animals nuzzle! Putting human ingenuity to work, 
the ancient Romans tried to improve the kiss by perfuming their lips! For modern gals who want to be 
kissible, perfume experts have this advice: fragrence lingers longer when applied to pulse points at 
temples, neck and wrists. 

Lewis, Duckworth 
Are Selected For 
GSC Dream Team 

Malcolm (Deacon) Lewis, sop- 
homore pitcher from Marshall, 
Texas and Billy Duckworth, out- 
fielder for the Demon baseball 
squad were recently named to 
the All GSC coaches and sports 
writers baseball team. 

Lewis, who is also quarterback 
for the football team compiled a 
6-2 record in his first season on 
the mound and led his team in 
strikeouts with 67. 

Duckworth was also an all- 
conference selection last year, 
leading his team in hitting with 
a .355 average. Duckworth led 
the way in conference hitting 
again this season with a .317 and 
a .284 average in all games pla- 

The Demons finished fourth in 
conference with a 11-10 GSC 
record while winning 16 and los- 
ing 17 in all games. 

Moncrief Wins Seat From Distefano; 
3 Female Cheerleaders Also Chosen 

Cheerleaders for the 1966-67 
school year and a senior class 
men's representative were se- 
lected in campus elections in the 
end of the Spring semester. 

Mickey Moncrief of Shreveport 
defeated Glenn Distefano of Alex- 
andria in a runoff vote for the 
seat in the Student Government 
Association. Distefano had been 
listed as the winner when the 
SGA elections were held at first, 
but a valid objection placed by 
Moncrief called for the new elec- 
tion and gave him the seat. 

Three male cheerleaders were 
chosen without opposition. They 
were: Mike Heibel of Bethseda, 
Maryland, Stan Parham of Mo- 
reauville and Larry Rivers of 

Bill Nolan of Colfax was chosen 
as the official Demon mascot for 
next year. He was also unopposed. 

Elected from a group of eight 

cheerleaders were Faith Brous- 
sard, Patti Castille and Judy Cole. 
Miss Broussard is from Alexan- 
dria, Miss Cole from Shreveport 
and Miss Castille from Opelousas. 

(Continued from page 1) 
superstitions — several we still 
observe today. 

Why, the bride? 

Know why men line up to kiss 
a new bride? Because an old 
English belief has it that all who 
kiss the bride after the ceremony 
but before the husband will have 
good luck for a year. 

Ever wonder why we "kiss to 
make well"? It goes back to the 
kinghtly practice of sucking the 
blood from wounds. 

The Welsh believe that the sex 
of the first baby kissed by a bride 
foretells the sex of her first-born. 
The French say that if a dark- 
complexioned man, who is in love 
with you, kisses you, expect a 
proposal — but not necessarily 
from him! And in the Dark Ages, 
kissing a pretty woman was dec- 
lared a sure cure for a headache. 

Kissing, of course, like any 
fine art, is executed differently 
in different lands. For example, 
pressing the lips together — as 
we do — would startle a Mon- 
golian. He prefers to bring his 
nose into light contact with his 
beloved's cheek or forehead while 
breathing slowly shrough his 
nostrils. An Ahyssinian kneels 
down and kisses the ground to 
express his love. A Turk kisses 
his own hand, then places it on 
his forehead. Other methods in- 
clude: Blowing on each other's 
hands, rubbing one's right ear 
and sticking out the tongue, 
smacking each other on the sto- 

Sound silly? Well, the way we 
carry on amuses other people, 
too. The Japanese find the Amer- 
ican habit of kissing in public 
not only very funny — but just 
a little indecent. But it seems too 
late to change our ways. Thanks 
to movies, novels and television, 
the art of kissing has become

hopelessly standardized. 

But perhaps it always was. Note 
this sage cynicism of Rudyard 
Kipling, Who had been around 
a bit, some 75 years ago: 

"My Son, if a maiden deny 
thee and scuffingly bid thee give 
o'er, Yet lip meets with lip at 
the lastward. Get out! She has 
been there before." 

And further .... 

"They are pecked on the ear 
and the chin and the nose who 
are lacking in love." 

Who was the greatest advocate 
of kissing? Perhaps it was the 
gal in the London play of 1616, 
"Scornful Lady," who would 
"kiss till the cow comes home." 
On the other hand, the poor 
"Mademoiselle from Armentie- 
res" of 1915 "hasn't been kissed 
in forty years"! But she could 
comfort herself with Thomas 
Gray's words: "Full many a flo- 
wer is born to blush unseen, And 
waste its sweetness on the desert 
air." The modern answer to this 
problem is expressed by Desert 
Flower's new slogan: "Why wait

Al Dodd Named GSC Athlete Of Year 

by Jerry Pierce 

Al Dodd, Northwestern football 
and track star, was recently 
named Gulf States Conference 
Athlete of the Year by the Lou- 
isiana Sports Writers Association. 

The 6-foot, 175 pound junior is 
the first Northwestern athlete to 
win the award since Red McNew 
in 1957. USL ex-basketball star 
Dean Church captured the honor 
last year and also the year before. 

Dodd was way ahead of the 
field of other athletes nominated 
for the award drawing 127 points 
as opposed to 85 points gained by 
Leonard Kleinpeter of South- 
western. Merlin Walet of Mc- 
Neese was third in the balloting 
with 73, and Ronnie Fountain 
of Northeast was fourth with 71. 

First place votes receive five 
points while second and third 

places received three points and 
one respectively. Other nominees 
for the award were C. A. Core 
and Lamar Labauve of South- 
eastern; Warren Heard of Nic- 
holls State and Dick Reding of 

A record-breaker at NSC since 
his freshman year, Dodd picked 
up 18 first place votes and was 
chosen second on 11 ballots. 
Kleinpeter had 13 first place 
votes and was second on six. 

Dodd, defensive safety and off- 
ensive halfback, was the only 
GSC player chosen this season 
to the National Association of 
Intercollegiate Athletes All-Amer- 
ican football team. He was also 
named for the second straight 
year to the All-GSC team and was 
voted by teammates as North- 
western's Most Valuable Player. 

6-foot, 175-pound football and 
track star at Northwestern State 
College, has been elected Gulf 
States Conference Athlete of the 
Year by the Louisiana Sports 
Writers Association. Dodd is a 
graduate of West Jefferson High 
School in New Orleans. 


Le Rendezvous 

113 Second St. 

This season Dodd tied the pass 
interception record he set as a 
freshman by stealing nine aerials 
for 198 yards. He also led his 
team in punt returns and kickoff 

He was Northwestern's third 

best scorer in track this season, 
compiling 40 points by taking 
five first places, three seconds, 
two thirds and fourth. Dodd set 
a new school record in the triple 
jump with a leap of 48-2V4 and 
also owns the team's best broad 

jump and high jump. 

Returning next year to compete 
for Northwestern in both foot- 
ball and track, Dodd is considered 
a top choice to repeat as All- 
American and is a likely draftee 
into the professional ranks.

Kysers Will End Lengthy Service Here 

PRESIDENT JOHN S. KYSER and Mrs. Kyser stand in the entrance to something that's been a way of 
life for them for a long time. The landscaping near the front entrance and on many other parts of the 
campus is the result of the work of Mrs. Kyser with able assistance coming from various faculty mem- 

A Romance 

The Beginnings Of A Dedication 

The young girl gripped her 
suitcase and began walking 
toward the hill just above the 
railroad station within earshot 
of all the pounding and rattling 
machines the railroad company 
pushed through there on the 
north-south line. She was 16; that 
was the Normal cocked up there 
on the hill between the trees; 
she was going to be a teacher. 

She'd come a long way on the 
train but it had been exciting. 
She loved to travel and what 
young south Louisiana girl would- 
n't, she thought, as she made her 
way to the little room that would 
be the place of many a weary 
hour ... in the struggle for a de- 
gree, for the right to teach, and 
the vital orientation to life that 
it's only fair for anyone to expect 
of college. 

It was a lovely day until she 
opened her suitcase in the room 
and discovered that her brand 
new shoes were covered in brown 
mud . . . and that's how the 
the story of the 90 — year career 
of Dr. and Mrs. Kyser began. 

"I found out later that it was 

my father who'd put the red mud 
on the shoes. He said it would 
serve as a reminder to me that 
I'd come from the bayous of 
south Louisiana to the red clay 
hills of the Natchitoches area. 
Little did we know then that I 
would be wiping that same red 
clay from my shoes for the rest of 
my life." 

In the words of Mrs. Kyser, one 
can find this amusingly percept- 
ive anecdote of the beginning, 
but the real story of her and Dr. 
Kyser's success needs only a 
moment's reflection on the vivac- 
ious and talented presence of 
Northwestern State College's first 

With a glint in her eyes she 
recalls a certain young man who

used to "give her the eye" as they 
collected their mail in Caldwell 
Hall. This was 1923 and the young 
man was John Kyser, a geogra- 
pher from the University of Chi- 
cago with "the reserve of a Yamn 
Dankee". Through a mutual 
friend, Dr. Guardia, the formal 
introduction was made — but not 
Mrs. Kyser recalls, "Before Dr! 
Guardia told me that the young 
man asked for the introduction." 

"I showed him the campus and 
we went to the dining hall toget- 
her. He used to come to see me 
after my classes were over. They 
closed the campus with iron bars 
across the roads in the evenings 
then. Well, one time he was com- 
ing to see me in his coupe and 
crashed right into one of those 
bars right beside the president's 
house. President Roy came out 
of the cottage and bawled him 
out and said if he hadn't been 
thinking of that young woman, 
he might be able to see where he 
was going." 

"Today, "she says," We are 
enjoying the satisfaction of hav- 
ing rendered service of the best 
of our ability always. It's been 
enjoyable, frustrating at times, 
tiring but always satisfying." 

Take Leave From College August 15 
After Total of 90 Years On The Hill 

President John S. Kyser takes 
leave from Northwestern State 
College here Monday, Aug 15, 
and his departure marks the beg- 
inning of the end of an associa- 
tion with the college by Dr. and 
Mrs. Kyser which together totals 
some 90 years. 

Dr. Kyser will be on leave until 
July 1, 1967, when he officially 
retires from the presidency which 
he has held since May 15, 1954. 

The Northwestern president, 
a native of El Paso, 111., came to 
Louisiana State Normal College 
in May, 1923. With the exception 
of absences for graduate work and 
teaching at LSU and Tulane, he 
has served continuously as pro- 
fessor, head of the Social Science 
Department, and as president, a 
period of more than 43 years. 

Mrs. Kyser, a native of Houma, 
attended the Normal as a 16-year- 
old student in 1916 and, after 
obtaining her two-year diploma 
and teaching in Louisiana high 
schools, returned as a student 
and teacher, earning her under- 
graduate degree in 1922. Later, 
in 1933, she earned her M. A. 
degree from Columbia University. 
Her association with the college 
nearly reaches the half-century 

The Kyser's both teachers at the 
Normal, were wed in 1924 and 
their daughter, Janet was born in 
1929 in Houma. Mrs. Kyser con- 
tinued to teach and to pioneer in 
women's health and physical edu- 
cation until her retirement in 

Prior to joining the faculty, Dr. 
Kyser had earned his undergrad- 
uate degree from the University 
of Michigan. He continued his 
graduate study at the University 
of Chicago, the University of Cali- 
fornia at Berklley and at Heidel- 
berg University in Germany, later 
earning his doctorate at LSU. 

After serving 12 years as a 
teacher in the social sciences, he 
was named head of this depart- 
ment in 1935. His academic con- 
centration has always been prim- 
arily in geography, history and 

Dr. Kyser developed a course 

known as "An Introduction to 
Human Society," designed to meet 
the needs of a core curriculum for 
college lower classmen. He deve- 
loped courses on Louisiana geo- 
graphy and history and taught 
them for some 31 years. 

Vitally interested in Louisiana, 
he had written his doctoral dis- 
sertation on "The Evolution of 
Louisiana Parishes in Relation to 
Population Growth and Move- 
ments." Later he was to institute 
the first college credit study tours 
of the state and to provide the 
first history lesson on television 
over station WDSU-TV in New 

The Kysers nave travelled 
extensively, covering all states of 
the United States, and in Europe, 
Canada, Mexico and Central Ame- 
rica. While on leave, it is expec- 
ted that they will continue their 
travels, this time to other parts 
of the world. Again, as in the 
past, Dr. Kyser will utilize his 
hobby of photography, continuing 
a photographic record and adding 
to an already voluminous picture 

In particular, the Northwestern 
president has centered his photo- 
graphic interest on documentation 
of architectural styles in those 
parts of France and Spain that 
have contributed so noteworthily 
to Louisiana. 

In 1936 he combined travel 
with study at Heidelberg. He and 
Mrs. Kyser have travelled in Eur- 
ope four vunes since then. Emph- 
asis has been on travel in France 
with a view to development of 
educational materials for use in 
Louisiana schools. 

In his teaching career at North- 
western, which spanned some 31 
years, Dr. Kyser estimates that 
he has taught approximately 
10,000 students. In addition to 
classroom lectures, he has pre- 
sented numerous addresses 
throughout the state, speaking on 
international relations and on 

"The privilege of teaching a 
class of at least reasonably intel- 
ligent and interested students is

Graduate Directed Play Set 
For Summer Presentation 


The Departing, a one-act play 
in three scenes by William H. 
Snyder, Jr., will be staged Thurs- 
day July 28 in the Little Theatre 
under the direction of Speech 
Graduate student,. H. Arthur 

The play deals with the prob- 
lems facing a youth of the South, 
leaving his native region for the 
first time to attend a northern 
military academy. The youth is 
played by Ronnie Thiebaud of

In the role of the young man's 
father, Petey Turner Sr., Gordon 
Parker of Natchitoches adds ano- 
ther performance to his list of 
characters depicted on the NSC 

Cindy Smith as Mrs. Alston 
and Lyn Hellinghausen in the 
role of Melinda Turner complete 
the cast. 

Miss Smith, of Natchitoches, 
recently received the "Best 
Actress" award at the Davis 
Players annual banquet for her 
portrayal of Mary in "All The 
Way Home." 

Miss Hellinghausen, of Shreve- 
port, brings a fine array of talent 
and experience on the stage to 
her role in the production. 

The play is being presented as 
partial requirement for Dew's 
Directing Class. Dew teaches at 
Vidor High in Vidor, Texas and 
is a 1965 graduate of this college. 

An incomplete list of the pro- 
duction crew includes the follow- 
ing students: Jim McGlothin, 
assistant to the director; Barbara 
Russell, SJage Manager; Leah

Among the many "firsts" cre- 
dited to Dr. Kyser was his organi- 
zation and teaching of the first 
college courses in audio-visual 
education. He prepared a movie 
of Acadia in Nova Scotia and, 
with his wife, developed text 
material to accompany it. 

While president he inaugurated 
the first master's degree program 
in colleges under the State Board 
of Education and greatly expan- 
ded academic offerings in all 
major subject matter areas. 

He secured approximately 
$19,000,000 for new buildings and 

major reworking of the physical 
plant. Including buildings under 
construction and a three and a 
quarter million dollar classroom 
building soon to be constructed, 
major structures include eight 
new dormitories and the rebuild- 
ing of four others, two dining 
halls, a biological sciences build- 
ing, an administration building, 
the Student Union, Prather Coli- 
seum, and a Shreveport nursing 
facility. Russell Library has been 
doubled in size, married housing 
units have been added and the 
power plant re-equipped.

"The fact that the task may 
require what_ from an ivory tower 
point of view, is an undue and 
even almost overwhelming 
amount of time and effort is in- 
consequential. It must be done 
and the president's traditional de-

President Kyser inaugurated 
the first professional type closed 
circuit television instruction in 
any institution of higher edu- 
cation in Louisiana with the start 
of the Northwestern program in 
the spring of 1961. More than 
10,000 students have enrolled in 
courses taught by television. In- 
dicative of the recognition ac- 
corded the Northwestern educa- 
tional television program was the 
awarding of a Federal grant re- 
cently in the amount of $29,884 
for the purchase of equipment. 
Northwestern was the only reci- 
pient of these funds in Louisiana. 

It was Dr. Kyser who was desig- 
nated by the college adminis- 
trators to make a plea to the State 
Board of Education in the spring 
of 1944 to change the name of 
the school to Northwestern State 

It was under his administration 
that accreditation of the School 
of Nursing by the National Assoc-

was attained. The School at 
Northwestern was the first col- 
legiate school of nursing to be

Potpourri Reviewed 

A Record And A Lifetime 

by Henry 

Bettie Moore. Potpourri 1966 
Nashville, Tenn., Benson Publish- 
ers, 1966. $7.00 

The Potpourri 1966 is a massive 
288-page Semi-autobiographical 
study of the liife and time of 
over 4,800 students, set in an 
idyllic small Southern town called 
Natchitoches. This seems to be a 
part of what critics have called 
the "Natchitoches saga", which 
began in the early 1900's. The 
book primarily deals with char- 
acter and setting, but is sadly 
lacking in drama and plot-so es- 
sential in a good work of semi- 
fiction. Characters are rushed on 
and off the stage without being 
fully explored in depth; however, 
a few characters come to life for 
the reader. For instance, the 
study of a character named 
Cecilia Shea is portrayed with a 
good bit of visual immagery, as 
well as that of the author herself. 
But with more characters than 
War and Peace it is difficult to 
depict each one so vividly. 

The action of the book centers 
around the growth and develop- 
ment of a group that the author 
calls "Freshman" through inter- 
mediate stages known as "Sopho- 
mores" and "Juniors" to the 
stages of highest development 
which she refers to as "Seniors" 


and "Graduate Students". The 
plot is developed through a 
series of almost unrelated epi- 
sodic incidents which take place 
during the years 1965 and 1966 
with occasional flashbacks to the 
summer of 1965. Primarily de- 
veloped through the use of visual 
images_ which are graphic and 
concrete, the plot unfolds slow- 
ly with meticulous care. Miss 
Moore's color symbolism is as 
vivid as any writer today, and she 
has seemed to have captured the 
flavor and drama of college life 
today. However, the main critic- 
ism of the work is that there 
seems to be a lack of fullness in 
the images of the student's daily 
lives, and the reader tends to see 
them in mass than as individuals. 

Miss Moore is an able novelist, 
and she is primarily remembered 
for the noted book that she and 
John Weffenstette, another writ- 
er in the "Natchitoches Saga," 
issued last year at this time cal- 
led The 1965 Potpourri. She ends 
her volume on a philosophical 
note that her work should be 
judged on the basis of "...its 
power to recall in the future the 
events and people of a given 
year." In thus respect, she has 
succeeded in her noble attempt.

He is a member of Sigma Xi 
honor society and both he and 
Mrs. Kyser are members of Phi 
Kappa Phi. 

Apart from his academic life, 
the Northwestern president has 
found time to devote to his avo- 
cations, which include photog- 
raphy. Few know of his interest 
in automobile mechanics or that, 
as a tennis coach in his early 
years, his teams won three con- 
secutive championships and gain- 
ed permanent possession of a 
trophy. He also, at one time, serv- 
ed as head lineman for conference 
football games. 

Mrs. Kyser, before her retire- 
ment from the college in 1940 
was a pioneer in the development 
of health and physical education 
for women. She was the first 
president of the Louisiana Associ- 
ation for Health, Physical Edu- 
cation and Recreation in 1933-35 
and was Louisiana Chairman for 
women's athletics of the Amer- 
can Association for Health, Physi- 
cal Education and Recreation 
from 1931 to 1940. She published 
a course of study in health and 
physical education for high school 
girls in 1933, which was adopted 
for Louisiana schools and she 
directed the first college curric- 
ulum for women in health and 
physical education during the 
years 1932-1940. 

Commenting on these early 
years, she said: "By this time 
Louisiana was in the midst of 
developing a planned program of 
health and physical education in 
recreation. A new emphasis was 
placed on recreation in play and 
sports for women. It seemed logi- 
cal for the college to assume the 
leadership in this movement with 
the education of teachers. I de- 
veloped the first curriculum in 
health and physical education for 
women and directed it until my 
retirement. It is most gratifying 
to see how very far Louisiana has 
come in this phase of education." 

Mrs. Kyser was honored by the 
LAHPER at the silver annivers- 
ary in November, 1958. The 1957 
state Women's Recreation Assoc- 
iation handbook was dedicated in 
her honor. 

Her activities have included 
serving as president, vice presi- 
dent and chairman of many com- 
mittees in the college chapter 
of the American Association of 
University Women. She is an 
honorary member of Delta Kappa 

To the campus voters of Natchitoches and Red River parishes. 

We would like to announce the candidacy of Ronald C. Martin for District 
Attorney of Natchitoches and Red River parishes. A 1952 graduate of NSC, 
Mr. Martin took part in numerous campus activities. He was editor of the 
1951 Potpourri, a member of the Student Council and a three-year letterman 
in baseball, to name only a few. In 1955, Mr. Martin received his degree from 
the LSU Law School. 

Today, he still maintains his close ties with Northwestern as a member of the 
N Club and the Wesley Foundation Board of Trustees. 

Mr. Ronald Martin is a member of the Natchitoches Parish, Red River Parish, 
and the Louisiana Bar Associations. Presently, he is assistant district attorney 
and is serving as President of the La. Assistant District Attorney's Associa- 
tion. Now in his eleventh year as a lawyer, Mr. Martin is certainly as qualified 
as anyone could be. 

Due to the limited amount of time before the election, it is impossible for 
our candidate to visit each of you on campus. Let us remind you that absentee 
voting will be held July 25-August 6. Otherwise, please cast your vote on 
August 13, for No. 25, Ronald C. Martin — capable — honest — experienced.

Both President and Mrs. Kyser 
have been honored through dedi- 
cation of past editions of Pot- 
pourri, student yearbook, in their 
honor and lifetime regular and 
honorary memberships in the 
Alumni Association. 

Active in community affairs, 
Mrs. Kyser has served terms as 
president and vice president of 
the Lesche Club, as a member of 
the Board of Directors of Colon- 
ial Natchitoches, Inc., and for the 
past 10 or more years has been 
president of the Association of 
Natchitoches Women for the 
Preservation of Historic Natchi- 
toches. At one time she served as 
president of the Eighth District 
Louisiana Federated Clubs and 
as a member of the Natchitoches 
Recreation Council. 

The future? Travel is certainly 
to be included in the plans of 
both. President Kyser, undoubt- 
edly, will give more attention to 
writing for publication and to do- 
ing the many things once impos- 
sible because of the press of ad- 
ministrative responsibilities. 

His outlook is shown in these

Demons Tangle With Wildcats Tomorrow

Wildcats of Louisiana College tomorrow night. | of the 1966 season. 

Lettermen Return On 4- Year Cue; 
Clayton Predicts 'Demon Year' 

Superstition or not, North- 
western football coach Jack Clay- 
ton thinks this is the year for the 

Northwestern's last two Gulf 
States Conference Championships 
have come four years apart, and, 
according to the calendar, it's 
time for another one. 

The Demons shared the crown 
in 1958, won it in 1962 and are 
considered darkhorse candidates 
for the title this year. 

For some reason, which Clayton 
can't explain, Northwestern has 
its greatest number of returning 
lettermen every fourth year. Like 
in 1962, when the Demons won 
the title outright, they had the 
league's largest number of re- 

turnees with 29. In 1958, the year 
they tied with Louisiana Tech for 
the championship, there were 19 
monogram winners back. 

This year, the Demons have 25 
lettermen returning — more than 
any other team in the GSC. 

Looking at the thing individ- 
ually, Northwestern stars seem to 
be born four years apart. Charlie 
Tolar, Dale Hoffpauir and Billy 
Jack Booth had their greatest 
year in 1958, and the same was 
true of Don Beasley, Jerry Burton 
and Glenn Talbert in 1962. This 
should be the year for Dick Red- 
ing, Al Dodd, and Gary Pittman. 

Clayton says the schedule has 
a lot to do with it. On even years, 
the Demons have the best of it. 

Northwestern opens the confer- 
ence season on the road against 
Northeast. The next game is 
against Louisiana Tech on the 
neutral field at State Fair Sta- 

Even if the Demons just break 
even in the first two they have 
two of the last three at home. 
McNeese is away, but Northwest- 
ern closes with Southwestern and 
Southeastern at Natchitoches. 

Gulf States Conference cham- 
pions rarely go undefeated in 
league play, and the champion- 
ship is usually decided at the 
wire. Two home games at the end 
of the year is an advantage for 

(See Demon Year, Page 2) 

Guidry's Arm To Attack 'Red Team'; 
Reding, Richard To be Prime Targets 

It's the old $64 dollar question 
once again. Put yourself in the 
place of a football coach and 
answer it. Will a good offense 
beat a good defense? 

When Louisiana College's Wild- 
cats tackle the 1966 edition of De- 
mon gridders here tomorrow 
night in the season opener, the 
question will be answered — bar- 
ring the possibility of a tie. 

It is common knowledge that 
offensive standouts, Donald Gui- 
dry, Louis Richard and Dick 
Reding should put on quite an 
aerial show for the highly part- 
isan Demon followers. 

What is not so commonly 
known is that the Wildcats have 
a defense to match. 

After being wounded 24-0 by 
Southwestern last weekend in 
their season opener, it doesn't 
seem like the right time to talk 
about the Louisiana College de- 
fense. But it is. Coach Eugene 
Southern's defensive unit, the 
"Red Team," held powerful South- 
western to only six first downs. 

Had it not been for an anemic 
offense and such errors as two 
wild snaps from center, a couple 
of fumbles, an intercepted pass 
and one aborted punt, Southwest- 
ern, the predicted Gulf States 
Conference Champ, might have 
taken it on the chin. 

Fullback Tommy Cannon and 
halfback Carroll Hymel will car- 
ry the brunt of the visitors' 

ground attack while Bill Bayles 
and Mike Hymel share the quar- 
terback job. 

If a field goal is needed, the 
soccer-type kicker Amnon Gimp- 
elivitz will be called into action. 
Observers say that Gimpelivitz 
kicked ten straight field goals in 
the practice session before the 
Southwestern game. 

Coach Jack Clayton's answer to 
the opposing "Red Team" is 
Quarterback Guidry's arm and 
the many talented receivers that 
compose an offensive squad cal- 
led the "Purple Team." 

Guidry, who threw 10 touch- 
down passes as a freshman var- 
sity quarterback last year, is ex- 
pected to find ends Reding and 
Richard many times during the 
game. When the R&R (Reding 
and Richard) combination is not 
at work, Guidry will pass to his 
flanker back, Gary Pittman. 

Running backs Neal Prather 
and Russ Gielow, a talented sop- 
homore from Vero Beach, Fla., 
will be the main wheels in the 
Demon ground attack. 

The Demon defensive unit will 
be led by Safety Al Dodd, who 
last year was named to the NAIA 
Ail-American team. 

Both the Demon offensive and 
defensive lines should be stronger 
than they were last year since 
only three lettermen were lost 
from tackle to tackle. 

Bossier, DeQuincy Freshmen Chosen 
As Cheerleaders At Class Assembly 

Two freshmen were elected 
this week to fill out the cheer- 
leading corps at Northwestern 
State College. 

Chosen in a vote of their class- 
mates were Vicki Todd of Bos- 
sier City and Rusty Bevil of 

The cheerleaders will have 
little time to rest before their 
first assignment tomorrow night 

when Northwestern opens the 
football season against Louisiana 
College at Natchitoches. 

Candidates for the cheerlead- 
ing positions went through cheers 
and routines at a meeting of the 
freshman class. The session was 
followed by an election. 

Patti Castille of Opelousas, re- 
turning from last year, will serve 
this year as head cheerleader. 

A Message From Dr. Kilpatrick 

Having had an opportunity to welcome our 
freshmen at the orientation assembly, I am pleased 
to utilize the columns of Current Sauce to wel- 
come all students, including upperclassmen, both 
returning and new students. 

All of you have been most patient and under- 
standing in acceptance of the varied problems re- 
sulting from campus expansion, last minute re- 
pairs, rennovations and road work, and a regret- 
table failure of delivery of furniture for the new 
dormitories. For your patience and understanding 
we are most grateful. 

Work on campus streets was unavoidably 
delayed. Work on sidewalks and parking areas is 
progressing rapidly after a late start and these 
inconveniences will be removed shortly. The manu- 
facturer has promised delivery of dormitory furni- 
ture within the next few days. 

You can be assured that we will continue to 
make every effort to provide for the best possible 
living conditions and your personal comfort dur- 
ing your stay on our campus. Bear with us for the 
present and look forward to full enjoyment of 
our improved and expanded campus facilities in 
the future.

Rhea Speaks For SGA 

On behalf of the Student Government Association I want 
to extend a warm welcome to all new NSC students this fall. 
The primary objective of SGA is to provide an assembly 
that will represent your views, needs, and concerns. When 
Student Government becomes separate from the Student 
Body, its usefulness is over. Those elected officials who act 
solely upon their own impulse, without considering the views 
of the entire voting student body or the eventual long range 
effect of their actions surely run a great risk. However, much 
of the responsibility rests with you, the students. The actions 
of SGA could easily affect you in the next few months. As a 
responsible citizen of NSC you should follow the SGA meet- 
ings and, if possible, become directly involved. Meet with 
your representatives and discuss your problems and desires. 
Student Government is powerful only if we make it so. 

Demon Year 

(Continued from page 1) 
Folks who have seen Clayton 
wear the same hat and suit for 

weeks when Northwestern is win- 
ning have little doubt that he is 
a superstitious person, but still 
the four-year bit is something to 
think about. 

Clayton will have a better idea 
about this season's "fourth year" 
team after he see them in the 
opener Sept. 24 against Louisiana 
College at Natchitoches.

Sports Editor 

When a college newspaper be- 
gins a new semester, it is invari- 
ably understaffed, underpaid, and 
already under fire. 

What happens when a small 
group of students, unified by an 
almost disinterested penchant for 
communication, undertake such 
weighty matters as "reflecting 
student opinion," "informing the 
public," and, yes, even fostering 

in their pages an effective tool of 
the "fourth estate." 

What happens is not always 
easy to predict. Students have 
opinions, but what and where is 
"student opinion"? Things hap- 
pen. Which of them must be writ- 
ten about to keep the public prop- 
erly "informed"? The best 
method for maintaining an ef- 
ficient check on our administra- 
tive Big Brothers and student-age 
leaders must be discovered by 
trial and error. 

Sometimes what happens is 
very little. Then the public may 
see Esquire mats, full-page fillers 
reading "patronize our adver- 
tizers," and lots of white space. 

So the year begins. If page one 
is all sports, and the girls need 
wastebaskets, what's happening 
is openers, beginnings. This is the 
Current Sauce. Hello.

To Newcomers 

Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick, North-

Advised to use their new-found

two six-week training peroids in 
the Marine Corps Platoon Leaders 

Pilkinton is the first student 
from Northwestern to complete

Designed especially for college 
students, the program leads to a

Vending Machines To Provide New 
Services in Dorms, Student Union 

Dean of Administration 
Charles F. Thomas has an- 
nounced acceptance by the 
college of proposals for the 
provision of varied services 
-including vending machines 
for ice cream, drinks, snacks, 
and hot and cold food, and 
dormitory washers and driers 
— by off-campus business 

Although state law does not 
require bids for these services 
by outside firms, Dean Thomas 
emphasized that proposals were 
sought, studied and accepted after 
careful study and evalutation. 
The new services, Dr. Thomas 
said are part of the continued 
expansion of campus facilities, 
including the expected comple- 
tion of the new Student Union 

Building in October. 

A contract for complete vend- 
ing machine service was awarded 
to Allen and Allen, Inc., of Winn- 
field. The service will include 
soft drinks with ice, freshly brew- 
ed coffee and chocolate, milk, 
snacks, ice cream, cold food, hot 
food, candy, cigarettes, fruit jui- 
ces change machines, and washers 
and driers. 

Allen and Allen, Inc., will pro- 
vide all new equipment and will 
maintain a truck on campus with 
two-way radio to provide instant 

Advantages of such an agree- 
ment, Dean Thomas pointed out, 
include the availability of a great- 
er variety of food and drink items 
due to the fact that the college 
will be dealing with one business 
firm rather than a number of 

separate individuals and compan- 
ies, and the elimination of the 
empty bottle problem which re- 
quired time of some college 
employees and was a potential 
danger in some cases to students 
and workers. 

Food services in the Student 
Union Building will be provided 
by R. E. Lucky and Harold Mc- 
Cain, former operators of the 
Broadmoor Restaurant. National 
award-winning hair stylist Joseph 
E. Pace of Baton Rouge will oper- 
ate the Student Union beauty 

"Northwestern will continue to 
make every effort to provide the 
best in personal services for its 
students, at the same time secur- 
ing much-needed revenues when- 
ever possible for our expanded 
operation," Dean Thomas said.

. . . AND IN THE MIDST of all the purples, there is some light of 
dream and imagination, simplicity and splendor in the life of the 
college student. Whether it appears in the eyes of a co-ed like Carol 
Beverly of Shreveport or in the mirrored recesses of one's own mind, 
it is refreshing — as tranquil and deep as this scene in the woods of the 
Red River Valley. (Photo by Larry Brown.) 

Brown Cinches Top Freshman Post; 
Royston To Serve As Vice President 

Rick Brown, a business educa- 
tion major from Mansfield, 
grabbed over 60 per cent of the 
votes for president in Tuesday's 
freshman elections. 

Brown won over Ted Cook of 
Beaumont, Texas, and Dean Nu- 
gent of Colfax. 

A winning vote of 250 clinched 
the vice presidency for John 
Royston, an accounting major 
from Alexandria. His opponents, 
Ron Burleson and Edmond Spur- 

geon, carried 86 and 34 votes, 

The office of secretary-treasurer 
was taken by Priscilla Eversull, 
a nursing student from Baton 
Rouge, with a vote of 222 to 143 
over her adversary, Gail Fryar.

Band Sports Mew Uniforms, Marchers 
In Glittering First-Of-Season Show 

By Virginia Nugier 

The sound of a referee's whistle 
pierced the hot night air three 
times, sharply in sucession ... a 
pause just long enough to grab a 
quick breath . . . and then, the 
polished efforts of Mr. Robert 
Smith's 1966-67 version of the 
Demon Band marched sharply 
across the stadium. 

The crowd was silent, caught 
by the dazzling array of sight and 
sound as the 103-member band 
stepped smartly through a well- 
balanced presentation. 

Sixty of them had never before 
performed in front of a college 
audience, one of the largest per- 
centages ever tolled by the fresh- 
man class in the band enrollment, 
but with the confidence of quality 
they were successful and enter- 

Led by Doug Sullivan and spic- 
ed with flashing legs, modern 
dance, and pep of marching tunes, 
this edition of the Demon Band 
should prove one of the best yet. 

Plans make room for an ad- 
ditional 11 members to march 
under the banners of the five 
schools, the alumni, the state, the 
school and the band itself. The 
American flag is not carried be- 
cause of the special flag raising 
ceremonies before the game per- 
formed by the Black Knights of 

Additional members are needed 
as flag bearers and marchers to 
complete the block formation.

'Sauce' Initiates 
New Policies 

The absence of an editorial on 
this page reflects a new policy of 
the student newspaper. During 
the Fall semester, editorials will 
appear only when the need for 
them suggests one. 

College papers, in general, 
fight deadlines, classes, and a host 
of other things in their efforts to 
produce an issue a week. As a 
result of this pressure, it is often 
the case that the editor falls into 
the habit of filling space with 
partially explored wandering on 
some carelessly chosen topic. 

The Current Sauce, in an effort 
to avoid the weak or dull editor- 
ial, canned filler or gossip col- 
umn, initiates with this issue a 
series of essays, some by students, 
some by members of the faculty 
and administration, in hopes of 
making each issue of the paper 
more and more the voice of its 
readers. This is especially true 
for the editorial page. 

Letters, if signed, and comments 
on the essays will be printed if 
received in our office by noon 

— The Editor 

By Wally Hebert 

(Editor's note: This is the first in a series of 
essays covering various topics we hope to 
bring to our readers this semester. For infor- 
mation concerning the series, contact us in 
Bullard Hall). 

"The Beatles are more popular than 
Christ" is one of those statements that 
shear away the pretence and the buf- 
fooning of an age. That such a statement 
could be made in our time should not 
occasion as much admiration or disgust, 
agreement or disagreement as it should 
occasion an evaluation. Although this is 
not what a more experienced writer 
would probably do, I am going to here 
state the boundaries within which I can 
consider this question. 

I believe, first of all, that the reli- 
gious alternative can be a vital and mean- 
ingful solution to the problems confront- 
ing each individual. I believe in God, and 
that there are as many paths to His wor- 
ship as there are people. I believe in the 
all-pervasiveness of the world "worship," 
that is, that it extends beyond the walls 
of any building into the current of life. 
I am a Baptist and although my denomi- 
nation is a vital part of my life, I could 
never approach any of the great ques- 
tions which cut across denominational 
boundaries as a Baptist rather than as a 

Jesus and the Beatles 

There is something basic about the 
difference between Jesus and the 
Beatles. This difference is one of import- 
ance, that is, that to speak of the Beatles 
is to make a decision between sitting in 
a rocking chair or sitting in a reclining 
chair, while to speak of Christ is to make 
a decision between two paths of equal 
and terrible importance, only one of 
which can be taken. 

This does not lead to the conclusion 
that there is no comparison between the 
Beatles and Jesus because the Beatles 
are here and now, while Jesus is in some 
obscure and ill-defined spiritual ivory 
tower, but rather to the conclusion that 
there has to be every comparison be- 
tween the Beatles and Jesus. This is not 
an either/or choice because the question 
of whether or not I like the Beatles is 
simply not as momentous as the ques- 
tion: "Do I believe in God?" or "Do I be- 
lieve in Christ?" 

What I am saying is that if whatever 
a person believes is not for here and for 
now as well as forever and if it does not 
help him to meet the uncompromising 
and unremitting challenge that is life, 
then he has nothing. 

Wanting Answers 

Now, here you are, reading The 
Current Sauce, probably a college stu- 
dent or someone connected with college 
life. All around you are people who are 
supposed to be making the most import- 
ant decisions of their lives. Is college life 
really a succession of questions left 
wanting answers? De we take course 
after course, memorizing fact after fact, 
never bothering to attempt our own or- 
ganization of what we have learned? I 
sense a general hesitation to confront 
those unavoidable questions that each 
must answer for himself. It seems as if 
we seek the anonymity of crowds and 
that temporary respite from the search 
of our souls. That evasion is only tempo- 
rary, for life makes no concessions and 
soon sends to us another challenge. 

This was meant to be a provocative 
essay, but whether or not it goes into the 
trash is of no concern to me. I only ask 
that you give to it the justice of your 
consideration and to yourself, your 

Theatre Announces Comedy Cast 

College Theatre rehearsals are 
now in progress for "You Can't 
Take It With You," a three-act 
comedy by Moss Hart and George 
S. Kaufman. The play, directed 
by Dr. Edna West, will run Oct. 
18-20 in the Little Theatre. 

"You Can't Take It With You" 
is the story of a zany family of 
eccentrics who do nothing unless 
they really want to, and live sim- 
ply for the zest of living. Sam 
Shelton and Lyn Hellinghausen 
head the cast as father and daugh- 
ter — Grandpa and Penny Vander- 
hof — whose happy-go-lucky philo- 

sophies of life affect everyone 
who enters the household. 

Penny (who became a play- 
write because a typewriter was 
once delivered to the house by 
mistake) is married to Paul (Jim 
O'Quinn), who doubles as family 
man and fireworks manufacturer, 
they have two daughters: Essie 
(Leah Luckett), who studies 
ballet — constantly — and Alice 
(Barbara Gresham), who is ro- 
mantically involved with Tony 
Kirby (Gordon Parker), the boss' 
son. Essie's husband Ed (Tommy 
Davis) plays the xylophone and 

innocently prints anti-American 
phamplets in candy boxes. 

Then there's Mr. DePinna (Jim 
Mambourg), who came to deliver 
ice one day and stayed eight 
years. And Mr. Kolenkov (Nick 
Pollacia), the Revolutionary re- 
fugee who teaches Russian ballet.

Dowty and Harvey Wilson), the 
Cook and her simple-minded boy-

LONG LINES were the rule for patrons of Northwest ern's new dining hall as administrative officials and 
the SGA worked to solve initial scheduling difficulties. Giueseppe "Joe" D'Avanzo, director of food ser- 
vices, has asked for "patience" in solving the line problems. "We want to give students good service and 
the best of food."

Tri Sigma Claims 
36 New Pledges 

The fabulous 1920's roared ag- 
ain last Wednesday night at Tri 
Sigma's "Speak Easy", where the 
Charleston was "the" dance and 
the flapper dress "in".

SORORITY RUSHEES PAUSE a minute from their hectic rush 
schedule during September 19 thru 25. Bids were issued and accepted 
by over a hundred college coeds in this fall's rush season. Three parties 
were given by each sorority before the girls and the sororities made 
their bids on Saturday, Sept. 24. 

After The Rush Is Over 

Alice has returned from the 
Wonderful Alpha Sigma Alpha 
Land, the Tri Sigma flapper 
dresses are back in moth balls, 
Sigma Kappas' have frozen their 
"Poi" and Delta Zeta has stored 
its pillows for next year's "Pillow 

All this means simply that so- 
rority rush is over all the 

hours of standing in receiving 
lines, the endless smiling, the 
thousands of "How do you do's" 
and "Your're from Where's" are 
now a thing of the past. 

It all began quite simply on 
Monday, Sept. 19, with all the 
girls being rushed by the sorori- 
ties meeting for a general con- 
vocation in the Fine Arts Audi- 
torium. This Panhellenic convo- 
cation was followed by a round 
of informal rush parties given by 
each sorority. 

The rushees were given Tues- 
day off, but were busy again 
Wednesday, Sept. 21, for the so- 
rority's theme parties. Tri Sigma's 

TKE's Pledge

were highlighted by a pizza party 
given by the fraternity's auxiliary, 
the Order of Diana. 

New members of the fall pledge 
class are: Joe Garteisher, Lewis 
Durvaloy, Tom Pipolei, John Bon-

initiated into the fraternity.

sorority preferences. Then the 
girls had to wait, what seemed

Sunday, for the issuance of the 
sorority bids. 

There were cheers and a few 
tears, but for over 100 young 
college coeds, a dream had come

to embark on the bumpy road to

the girls will take pledge tests, 
study hard to keep good grades, 
and do endless chores for their 
"Big" sisters. 

They'll shine a lot of shoes, 
make a few beds, wash countless 
cars and carry umpteen lunch 
trays; but for them it will be fun. 

It will be a hectic time for the 
pledges and they may even com- 
plain a bit, but on their initiation 
day, everything will seem worth-

SOME PEOPLE bring everything to college with them, but this procession of grandeur really brings out 
the ingenuities of today's youth. Note the proportion in weight between the amount the student is 
carrying and the amount the family bears. If you're on a symbolistic kick you can sit and marvel; but 
more pracitical members of the student population should find here a useful lesson. Don't just bring 
everything with you the next time you make the big trip. Bring everything plus your family to bear the

Current medical-surgical nurs- 
ing procedures were reviewed 
recently in a one-day workshop 
by the Shreveport faculty of the 
NSC School of Nursing. 

The meeting was held at Schum- 
pet Hospital for the Northwest 
Regional Health Nurses. It was 
the second of a series of three-in- 
service education programs. 

The workshop was divided into 
two sessions. Topics under dis- 
cussion included current trends in 
medications and studies of spe- 
cific drugs used for various thera- 
pies. Nursing of cancer patients 
was also emphasized. 

Speakers on the program — all 
from NSC-Shreveport — were Mrs. 
Martha Lipsey, instructor in medi- 
cal-surgery nursing; Mrs. Paula 
Burnitt, instructor in medical- 
surgical nursing, Mrs. Margaret 
Hicks, instructor in medical-sur- 
gical nursing; Mrs. Patricia Mox- 
ley, assistant professor of nursing; 
Mrs. Lorence Farris, assistant 
professor of nursing; Miss Frances

reporter Lottie Hayward, publicity 
chairman Sandra Bush and social 
chairman Sandra Guidry. 

Attention was called to the re- 
ception and SLTA by members 
who gave short talks before all 
education related classes. 

They informed students that 
Student LTA is a professional 
association for all college and 
university students who are pre- 
paring for a teaching career, and 
membership is open to any person 
pursuing a curriculum that quali- 

fies him for a teacher's certificate 
and who is also eligible for mem- 
bership in the Louisiana Teacher's

Sophomore Nursing Majors Wear 
Uniforms For First Time Monday 

Sophomores at the Shreveport 
campus of the Northwestern State 
College School of Nursing will 
wear their uniforms for the first 
time Monday in a special program. 

The theme for the evening will 
be the "Dedication of Purpose." 
By presenting a panel discussion 
the various professional and stu- 
dent nursing organizations, hope 
to encourage active participation 
in student organizations as a pre- 
requisite to leadership in pro- 
fessional groups after graduation. 

Discussing the Louisiana Asso- 
ciation of Student Nurses will be 
Sylvia Smith, a senior from 
Winnsboro. She is presently sec- 
ond vice president of the state 
organization, which serves as a 
constituent member of the Nat- 
ional Nurse Association. 

Representing the NSNA on the 
panel will be Pat Grob, a junior 
from Shreveport serving as presi- 
dent of the Shreveport student 
body, who attended the national 
convention of NSNA in San Fran- 
cisco last June as a representative 
of the NSC School of Nursing. 

Both Miss Smith and Miss Grob 
will stress the possibilities of 
growth toward professionalism to 
be found through participation in 
student organization activities. 

Mrs. Eunic Rodgers, director of 
the Shreveport clinical campus, 
will discuss the American Nurses 

The final panelist will be Mrs. 
Katie Wells, who is currently 
serving as secretary of the Shreve- 
port League for Nursing.

SGA Discusses Dining Situation 

By Sharon Matthews 

The seemingly never-end- 
ing complexities of the dining 
hall situation and the misuse 
of student meal tickets pro- 
vided the main source of 
controversy Monday night, 
as Milton Rhea presided over 
the regular weekly meeting 
of the Student Government 

"The long waiting lines so fa- 
miliar to the new dining hall stu- 
dents will be leveled off as more 
student workers are employed," 
explained Gary Foster, president 
of the sophomore class. "Tardy 
job notifications from the finan- 
cial aid office have been a major 
cause of the lack of student help." 

Also discussed was the possi- 
bility of transferring the resi- 

dents of Varnado Hall to St. 
Denis dining hall which is closer 
to Varnado than the new dining 
facility. St. Denis, presently serv- 
ing 200-250 fewer students than 
its rated capacity of 1050, would 
seem a more logical choice for 
Varnado residents than the new 
dining hall, SGA members de- 

The possibility of "cashing-in" 
unused meals on the meal tickets 
was also discussed, but this was 
described by Dean Dudley Fulton 
as impractical. He explained that 
the dual purpose of the card 
seems to be (1) the prevention 
of the "passing around" of I.D.'s, 
thus getting more than one meal 
to a card, and (2) less financial 
loss involved in losing the card. 

A new card will be issued to 
the student as he pays his room 
and board. Students who paid in 

Bradford Publishes Literary Studies 
In 'Southern Review/ 'CE A Journal 

Articles by M. E. Bradford, as- 
sistant professor of English at 
Northwestern State College, have 
been selected to appear in three 
current scholarly magazines. 

"Meaning and Metaphor on 
Donald Davidson's 'A Touch of 
Snow' " appears in the summer 
issue of Southern Review, "Faulk- 
ner's 'That Evening Sun' " ap- 
pears in the June CEA Critic, and 
"Brotherhood vs. 'The Bear' " 
appears in the summer issue of 
Modern Age. 

Other recent articles by Brad- 
ford have been published in Stud- 
ies in Short Fiction, Mississippi 
Quarterly, and Georgia Review. 

Slated for publication in the 
Fall issue of Sewanee Review is 
"Rhetoric and Revisionism: Black 
Slavery and the Argument from 
Authority," which Bradford de- 
scribes as a discussion of Marxist 
and other liberal misrepresenta- 
tions of the Old South. 

Also scheduled for publicatioin 
this fall is an article on Southern 
agrarianism for Modern Age. 

Tickets On Sale 
For Entertainment 

The SGA $2.00 entertainment 
ticket booklet will be on sale at 
Dean Fulton's office in the ad- 
ministration building until Wed- 
nesday, October 5. 

By purchasing a ticket booklet 
now, a student will save 50 per 
cent on tickets to fall perform- 
ances given by the Lettermen, 
the Righteous Brothers, and 
Martin St. James. 

If a student waits and buys 
each ticket individually at the 
door before each performance, 
his total purchase price will be 
$4.00, compared to the current 
$2.00 price. 

This ticket booklet is essen- 
tial if a student intends to attend 
the fall entertainment because 
students will no longer be admit- 
ted to the special entertainment 
by their I.D.'s. 

Under the SGA's new system, 
the I.D. card and a ticket for the 
performance must be presented 
at the door for admittance. 

This new method, which is 
totally different from last year's, 
will provide funds for twice as 
many big name entertainers this 
fall as compared to the fall se- 
mester of 1965-66. 

Tickets to the three perform- 
ances will be sold to the public 
at $2.50 for the first two and 
$1.50 for the third.

Bienville Hall Annexed 

jndustriaTEducation Adds Space 

Father Luckett New Episcopal Chaplain 

By Danny Boutwell 

The Industrial Education 
department recently added 
some 10,000 square feet of 
floor space to its present fa- 
cilities by occuping Bienville 
Hall, once a dining hall. 

Students and members of the 
faculty have shown their eager- 
ness to move into the added • 
space by doing the remodeling 
work when not attending classes. 
Students are also moving the 
equipment into the building. At 
present, seven classes are taught 
in the building, although remodel- 
ing remains unfinished. Comple- 
tion of remodeling is expected 
in the near future. 

This department had its origin 
in 1945 on parking lot number 41. 
At this time the department was 
operating with war surplus ma- 
chinery which was donated to the 
college. The year 1951 marked 
tragedy for the School of Indus- 
trial Education in the form of a 
fire which damaged much of the 
equipment in the facility then 
occupied. Salvaging what was 
possible as a trade-in on new 

Wofford To Direct 
Research Bureau, 
Field Services 

Acting President Arnold R. Kil- 
patrick has announced the estab- 
lishment of an NSC Bureau of Re- 
search and Field Services under 
the direction of Dr. T.B. Wofford, 
associate professor of education. 

The new bureau, beginning this 
fall, will conduct internal and ex- 
ternal research and will act as a 
clearinghouse for federal pro- 
gram information. 

Its internal, or instutional, re- 
search will include studies relat- 
ing to administrative and educat- 
ional problems of the college, en- 
couragement of basic research in 
areas of investigation important 
to education and the instution, 
the stimulation of research a- 
mong faculty, and the provision 
of leadership experiences for the 
training of research workers in 

The bureau will provide a ser- 
vice organization to work with 
local school systems and will as- 
sist the college in providing a 
leadership role in service to these 

An important function will be 
its role as a research clearing- 
house on federal programs. 

Dr. Wofford joined the North- 
western faculty in summer, 1965. 
He had been Director of the Lou- 
isiana State Vocational-Technical 
Curriculum Laboratory in Natch-

In 1953, after growing some- 
what, the department moved into 
a new building with a floor space 
of 20,000 square feet. With the 
adding of Bienville Hall, much 
needed classroom and office 
space comes into existence. 
The faculty for the department 

has also grown. Despite two loss- 
es this year, the school employs 
six full time professors, two of 
which have their doctorate de- 
grees, five graduate assistants, 
one laboratory assistant, and one 
part-time instructor. "Where as 
the original department was only 
for students who were becoming 
industrial arts teachers, the pre-

Father Robert Luckett, newly- 
appointed curate of Trinity Epis- 
copal Church, has been named 
Episcopal chaplain at Northwest- 
ern State College. 

Father Luckett, whose office 
will be in the Parish House of 
Trinity Church, will meet Epis- 
copal students and student visit- 
teachers, but individuals who 
wish to enter the industrial 
world also," commented Dr. Walt- 
er J. Robinson, head of the de- 

ors at the Canterbury Club, 113 
Lee St., each Thursday at 5:30 

Father Luckett, a graduate of 
Bolton High School, received his 
BA. degree in biology in 1954 at 
Louisiana College, and his bachel- 
or of divinity in 1966 from the 
School of Theology, University of 
the South, Sewanee, Tenn. 

He was ordained to the Sacred 
Order of Deacons in St. James 
Episcopal Church in Alexandria 
Sept. 12. At Trinity he will assist 
the rector, Rev. Joel Treadwell.

that I heard as I stood by Coach 
Jack Clayton during a Monday 
practice session. 

"They don't act like it's a Blue 
Monday workout, do they?" mut- 
tered the Demon head coach. 

"No they certainly don't," a 
bystander added. 

It would be the understatement 
of the year to say that the morale 
of the Demon football squad is 
up — it's sky high! 

With the rejuvenated North- 
east Indians next on the list, the 
Demon coaching staff must be 
glad that spirits are good, be- 
cause every ounce of stamina 
will be needed to hold down the 
fort at Monroe tomorrow night. 

After knocking off Louisiana 
College 49-0, the high-spirited 
gridders will have a chance to 
prove that it's a mistake to blame 
La. College for the lop-sided 

A good indication that they will 
get their chance came when 
Coach Clayton's counterpart, 
Coach Dixie White, made this 
statement, "It was inspriring." 
Evidently he was talking about 
the 21-14 shellacking the Indians 
gave East Carolina last weekend 
at East Carolina. 

The 21-14 victory ran the In- 
dian's record to 2-0, and it is 
easy to see why their record is 
what it is when you examine 
their material. 

First, let's start with Dalton 
LeBlanc, a senior who concen- 
trated on track and didn't come 

good night against Louisiana 
College as he ran for one score, 
passed for another and kicked all 
the points after touchdowns. 

Carlucci Begins 
His Eighth Year 
In Concert Hour 

The Concert Hour, a radio pro- 
gram of recorded symphonic 
music, will return to the air for 
the eighth consecutive year begin- 
ning Sunday at 1 p.m. Returning 
as host and commentator will be 
the program's orginator, Dr. Jos- 
eph B. Carlucci. 

The two-hour broadcast may be 
heard each Sunday afternoon 
from October through May, over 
station KNOC in Natchitoches. 

out for football until this fall. He 
was quickly placed at flankerback 
because he runs the 100-yard dash 
in only 9.4 seconds. 

LeBlanc scored two of the 
three touchdowns against East 

"Dalton's been one of our 
pleasant surprises," White said. 

Next in line is sophomore 
quarterback Steve Mansur, who 
has shown the qualities of a vete- 
ran while leading his team 
through the early going. 

When the tough yardage is 
needed, field boss Mansur will 
probably call on All-GSC back 
Alton Thomas and fullback Bobby 

The offensive and defensive 
lines should be fairly solid since 
only three lettermen were lost in 
this department. 

Ronnie Holland, one of the 
better high school quarterbacks 
in the state last year, will handle 
the kicking chores. So far this 
year he has punted for an average 
of 46 yards. 

The score could conceivably be 
even closer than the 17-12 Demon 
triumph last year. 

Quarterbacks Donald Guidry 
and Malcolm Lewis guided the 
powerful and balanced Demon 
offense to a 49-0 taming of the 
Louisiana College Wildcats Satur- 

The two Demon field comman- 
ders picked the Wildcat defense 
apart from late in the first quart- 
er until the final gun sounded. 

With the clock showing a little 
more than two minutes to play in 
the first quarter, Guidry found 
tight end Dick Reding on a 45- 
yard pass play. Reding was finally 
stopped only 14 yards away from 
paydirt. Halfback Gary Pittman 
carried the leather in on the next 

After recovering a fumble late 
in the first quarter, the Demons 
opened the second quarter on 
the Wildcat 33. It wasn't long 
until Reding found another one 
of Guidry's passes, this one being 
a 29-yard touchdown. 

Shortly after that, lightning 
struck coach Eugene Southern's 
team again when Malcolm Lewis 
climaxed an 88-yard drive with a 
touchdown run from the Wildcat 

Even though the 21-0 halftime 
bulge turned out to be more than 
enough for a win, the Demons 
came out of the dressing room 
touchdown hungry. Before the 
night was over, the Demon scor- 
ing machine had manufactured

The first of these came in the 
third quarter when tackle Paul 
Alonzo pounced on a loose foot- 
ball at the Wildcat 43. 

Then halfback Neal Prather 
took matters into his own hands 
and ran the ball to the 6-yard 
line. After that effort, Prather 
finished the job by being the 
fourth Demon to cross the goal 

Lewis opened the scoring in 
the fourth quarter with a 47-yard 
pass to Ken Callans, a freshman. 

All-American safety Al Dodd 
got into the thick of things when 
he intercepted a pass and ran the 
chalk line, making the score 41-0. 
Lewis added the additional point 
for the sixth straight time. 

Another freshman, Jon Hall, 
raced 6 yards for the final score. 
Once again Lewis added the extra- 
point, and the scoreboard read 49- 
or 049 depending on which 
side you were pulling for. 

FRESHMAN KENNETH CALLENS is on the move. This shot was 
taken during the second quarter as halfback Callens galloped for a 
33 yard gain. Callens also caught a 45 yard pass for a touchdown. 

Nobody has a smoother line!

Frosh Reflections 

by Sauce Sports Staff 

What a way to open the football season! Surely Coach 
Jack Clayton will ask for a salary raise after the 49-0 stomp- 
ing the gridders gave the Wildcats Saturday night. 

Really outstanding were quarterback Donald Guidry and 
end Dick Reding. Guidry hit ten passes out of 15 for 162 yards, 
and one of these passes ended up being worth six points. The 
receiver? That's right. Dick Reding. 

Before Reding sat down on the bench and watched the 
reserves finish off the Wildcat carcass, he hauled in a total of 
six passes for a total of 138 yards. 

Guidry, whose .667 passing percentage would be tops in 
most any football contest, came out second in the passing 
percentage race. Who beat him? No, not Joe Namath. Not 
Johnny Unitas, but Malcolm Lewis. That's who. 

Lewis, the number two quarterback, hit receivers six of 
the seven times that he passed for a dazzling — have you cal- 
culated it by now? — .857 mark. 

Making the Grade 

Having trouble with the grades lately? Here are a few 
people who aren't. They are Gerald Malley, Carrol Long, 
David Lovich, Paul Alonzo, Al Dodd, David Smith, Sammy 
Clifton, and Richard Concillio, all members of the White unit 
(defensive team). On the offensive unit, or the Purple team, 
most everybody in the backfield graded well, while in the 
offensive line Dick Reding, Eddie Mittelbronn, Randy Brod- 
nax and David Arnold came out with A's. 

Of course I've been referring to Coach Clayton's grading 
scale that rates player performance during actual game com- 

GSC Predictions 

NORTHWESTERN 21 — Northeast 20 — This one could 
be even closer than I have predicted. Whoever gets the 
breaks should win. 

Louisiana Tech 17 — McNeese 7 — The Bulldogs held 
Alabama to 34 points, and this was about as good as LSU did 
with the national champs last season. They should handle 
McNeese fairly easily at Ruston. 

Southeastern 10 — Southwestern 7 — Last week USL 
lost to Delta State by a whopping 28-3 score, and Southeastern 
lost to Mississippi Southern 15-13. Certainly Southeastern's 
loss was more impressive. 

Intramural Season To Open Monday; 
Team Entrance Fee To Be Required 

This year as in the past, the 
physical education department 
has a well-planned intramural pro- 
gram open to all male students. 

Headed by physical education 
instructor Roy Gentry, the pro- 
gram will have a full schedule 
of events for the entire year. 

The season gets underway of- 
ficially with the kickoff at the 
first touch football game 4:30 
p.m. Monday. 

In addition to touch football, 
other sports included in the 
year's program are: basketball, 
track and field, softball, swim- 
ming, weight lifting, gymnastics, 
bowling, paddle ball, volley ball, 
table tennis, golf, badminton, 
canoeing and jousting. 

Each touch football team will 
be composed of 18 men although 
only nine men are allowed on the 
playing field at one time.

New Debate Coach Eyes Huge Season 

By Susie Chancey 

Ray Schexnider, new assistant 
professor of languages and direc- 
tor of forensic activities at North- 
western, has already been credit- 
ed with a number of quotable 

"I plan to make NSC debaters 
the best in the state — maybe the 
greatest in the South." 

"I hunt, fish, and drink beer. I 
also fence." 

"The secret of debate success? 
Simply hard work and a deter- 
mination to win." 

"I like to win and mean to win." 

"Acting? I've played numerous 
roles — everthing from the sup- 
port French waiter in "The 
Matchmaker" to Jamie in "Long 
Day's Journey into Night." 

Surrounded by intent debaters, 
coach Ray Schexnider discusses 
this year's topic: Resolved: that 
the United States government 
should substantially reduce its 
foreign policy commitments. This 
is Schexnider's first year as de- 
bate coach. 

"All of us want to write. I plan- 
ned to write the Great American 
Novel. Now I just stick to lec- 

Schexnider is an ambitious, 
astute, seemingly dedicated man 
with a forceful, magnetic class- 
room manner. He came to North- 
western after 3 years of forensic 
directing at the University of 
Mississippi at Oxford. Having 
earned a BA. at the University 
of Southwest Louisiana at Lafay- 
ette, he finished with an M.A. at 
LSU in Baton Rouge. While a 
senior at LSU, Schexnider was 
named Outstanding Debater of 
the Year, Outstanding Senior 
Radio Broadcaster, and won the 
Louisiana State Oratorical Champ- 

Though debate and other for- 
ensic activities are Mr. Schex- 
nider's primary concern, he has a 
vital interest in the theatre. He 
studied acting professionally on 
the West Coast, and has referred 
to himself as "one of the best 
actors I know." 

He also directed, and was 
named Outstanding Director of 
the Year by the La. Players' 
Guild while at LSU. Among his 
productions are Shakespeare's 
King Henry the Fourth" and 
"Look Back in Anger." 

Schexnider expresses a partic- 
ular curiosity in the "avant 
garde" movement in play writing 
today, as shown in "Oh Dad! Poor 
Dad! Mama's Hung You in the 
Closet and I'm Feeling So Sad." 
"It's the desdondent approach," 
he says. "It's too much to cope 
with, so withdraw. I am curious 
to see if this philosophy will be- 
come a definite trent in play- 

The potential debaters in 205 
seem eager to meet Schexnider's 
challenge. Said one student, "I 
like people who like to win. It 
will be a heck of a lot of more 
work for me, but good for the 

And another: "It would be 
something to be the best in the 
South, wouldn't it?"

Tight Guidelines 

SGA Institutes Financial Check 

By Kenny Baker 

The Student Goernment Asso- 
ciation Monday night voted to 
issue letters of special request to 
the Current Sauce, Potpourri, dra- 
ma department and the student 
loan office in order to keep a 
tighter check on student's money 
paid in at registration. 

SGA Treasurer Scotty Maxwell 
who made the proposal stated 
letters would be sent to each de- 
partment "to aid your organiza- 
tion in functioning smoothly in 
the best interest of your subscrib- 

The fllowing requests will be 
issued to the Current Sauce by 

the SGA: a set of books showing 
each week's ads, date paid and 
the college receipt number; na- 
tional advertisements, when and 
how paid; budgets showing in- 

come, expenses and surpluses. In 
addition, requisitions in all de- 
partments must be signed by the 
president and treasurer of the 

Similar requests will be issued 
to the Potpourri, drama depart- 
ment and student loan office. 

Miss Selma Mahfouz, bookstore 
manager, was present at the 
meeting to explain the book- 
store's new policy concerning the 
purchase and resale of books. 
Miss Mahfouz brought out several 
items which she said "seemed to 
be confusing quite a few of the 
students." For instances, students 
may purchase used books at 
three-fourths of the current re- 
tail price rather than pay the 
full retail price for a used book, 
which was the policy in the past. 

Students selling books at the 
end of the semester may sell 

their books at one-half the full 
current retail price. This is not 
to be confused with the used 
book price which they paid at 
the beginning of the semester. 
Students who resign or drop a 
course in the first two weeks of 
the fall or spring semester may 
have their books repurchased at 
the price for which they will be 
resold. All other policy concern- 
ing sale and repurchase of books 
will be similar to past procedur- 

Earl Coulon, news bureau dir- 
ector spoke to the SGA asking 
their permission to invest a 
$10,000 balance in Current Sauce 
funds and $32,000 ($8,400 balance 
and funds from this year to be 
invested for six months) balance 
in Potpourri funds into a savings 
and loan to make additional in- 
come for the two publications. 

The reslution was made to invest 
the money as the two organiza- 
tions see fit. 

James Ellis made an appeal to 
the SGA to provide funds for the 
drill team to make a trip to Wash- 
inton, D.C., to compete in the 
Cherry Blossom Festival in April. 
Complete cost of the trip would 
be $2,500, Ellis told the SGA. 
David Faraldo, SGA Vice-Presi- 
dent reminded the group that 
this amount was half the entire 
SGA income for the year. The 
association then decided to refer 
the matter to a committee to in- 
vestigate into a possible solution. 
The committee was given a dead- 
line of three weeks to gather in- 
formation about the project. 

SGA president Milton Rhea re- 
minds all freshman that applica- 
tions for freshman associates 
must be filed immediately

Peter Nero Scores Smash Wednesday 

By Susie Chancey 

When we walked in, he was 
polishing his shoes. 

Somebody dialed the Zesto. He 
reached the phone. "Send food," 
he said. "A chocolate malt and . . . 
and apple tart." 

With a final whisk at gleaming 
feet, Peter Nero started talking. 
"So you're from Alexandria, huh? 
Do you know Mr. and Mrs. Hef- 
ner? It's their tenth anniversary 
today, and they wrote that they 
were coming to the concert to 


We picked up the question line 
with a "Who's interviewing who?" 
and proceded to find out that 
Peter Nero is originally from New 
York, started piano at 7, held 
his first concert at 11, and gradu- 
ated from Brooklin College with 
a degree in music and a minor in 

When we left the dressing 
room, he was playing left-handed 
baseball with a Zesto malt cup. 

Minutes later, Peter Nero was 

on stage, playing a variety of 
classical, semi - classical, and 
Broadway music to a warmly re- 
ceptive crowd in Prather Coli- 

According to one NSC music 
major, "His technique was in- 
fallible, his tone full and rich, 
and his melodic and soft passages 
delicately ornamented." 

The technique was intense. 
After bending low over the key- 
board, at times he looked upward, 
as if seeking inspiration in the 

coliseum rafters. 

One of the most impressive and 
moving numbers was a medley 
from "Porgy and Bess." Gershwin 
was interpreted with light-jazz 
Nero innovations. 

His humor was subtle and bent. 
After claiming that he was the 
only musician alive who had com- 
posed an authentic ending to 
Schubert's "Unfinished Sympho- 
ny," he played his sequel: a com- 
bination of the Long Ranger 
theme, the Spearmint gum com- 
mercial, and the theme from "Bat- 

man." Then there was "Yester- 
day" by Johann Sebastian Beatle, 
and an original composition en- 
titled "Scratch My Bach." 

Nero and his drum and bass 
fiddle ensemble will appear in 
50 concerts in the next 50 days, 
and will be at LSU Friday night. 

After a standing ovation from 
his enchanted audience, Peter 
Nero granted an encore with a 
special rendition of "Over the 
Rainbow," dedicated to a couple 
in Alexandria with a special an-

Under The Earphones 

Foreign Labs N' Languages 


By Joe Landrum 

The room is hushed. Its occu- 
pants wait in breathless antici- 
pation. Then abruptly, the Gallic 
intonations of Madame Mouton 

"Bonjour, monsieur." (Note 
the impeccable roll of the R.) 
"Vous etes etudiant ici?" 

"Oui, mademoiselle. Je suis un 
etudiant de francais." 

Perhaps we've stumbled into a 
class at the Sorbonne, or the Al- 
liance Francais Unlikely? Well, 
how about the foreign language 
laboratory in Guardia Hall? 

This fall, a record unmber of 
students are enrolled in foreign 
language courses; and are thus 
participants in the lab program. 

In a recent interview, Miss Eve 
Mouton, director, discussed the 
lab and some of its current pro- 

Q: Miss Mouton how old is 
the lab? 

A: In the spring of 1939, 1 was 
told that there was $1000 to be 
used for a foreign language lab. 
We started it that summer. It 
was in Guardia Hall, just where it 
is at present. However, the origi- 
nal equipment has been replaced. 

Q: One thousand dollars cer- 
tainly doesn't seem like a very 
large budget. What does it cost 
to run the lab today? 

A: Plenty. There are fifteen 
booths in the lab. I understand it 
costs almost $300 per year to 
operate one booth. 

Q: A lot of students have been 
complaining about night labs. 
Why is it necessary to have them? 

A: It's quite simple. There is 
no room for these people in the 
day labs. The school of Arts and 
Sciences requires that all its stu- 
dents take a foreign language. 
Since there are so few booths in 
the lab, it operates at full capa- 
city most of the day. We had no 
choice but to set up these night 
sessions. I'm hoping that we'll 
soon be able to do away with 

them. You see, people from day 
labs have already begun to drop 
out. We're trying to move these 
night people up as soon as vacan- 
cies occur. 

Q: How many students are en- 
rolled in lab sessions now? 

A: Oh, I'd say at least three 
hundred. Besides students of 
French, the lab handles German 
and Spanish language students. 

Q: How many helpers does it 
take to operate the lab? 

A: There are nine lab assist- 
ants and some of these are work- 
ing overtime an hour or two. 

Q: What exactly goes on at a 
typical session? 

A: The student hears a foreign 
phrase or sentence on tape_ and 
repeats it. When he has repeated 
the whole lesson, he plays the 
tape back to himself. He hears 
the instructor's voice; and then, 
his own. Thus, he discovers his 
mistakes in grammar and pro- 
nunciation. Essentially, this is the 
procedure followed in lab. 

Q: Many people complain 
about the monotony of lab ses- 
sions. I must admit that there are 
more stimulating ways of spend- 
ing 50 minutes. What do you 

A: By the time young men and 
women get to college, they 
should be mature enough to make 
a few adjustments. Admittedly, a 
lab session is not exciting. But 
if students would record as they 
are supposed to, instead of sitting 
and sulking the time would pass 
more quickly. 

Q: But couldn't the sessions be 
livened up a bit? Perhaps you 
could record simple stories or 

A: That would be fine if we 
had the extra time and space. 
However, in our present situa- 
tion, it is necessary to stick to 
essentials. If there were enough 
advanced foreign language stu- 
dents, I would like to put them 
in lab work with beginners. Per- 

MODERN ELECTRONIC equipment, as demonstrated by these NSC 
students, helps the foreign language student in his pronunciation of the 
language. A massive tape recording system in the college's language 
laboratory plays recorded conversations in French, German, Spanish, 
and Russian. The student is able to listen to the recording, record his 
own voice, and playback the tape of his voice.

element would make lab students 
more responsive. 

Q: Spending three hours a 
week in lab won't enable a stu- 
dent to speak a foreign language 
fluently, will it? 

A: Of course not! To learn to 
speak a language fluently, one 
has to spend a large portion of 
every day in the lab. Many people 
think that lab is some sort of 
panacea for all difficulties in 
teaching a foreign language. This 
jut isn't so. Used wisely, it can be 
an indispensable AID. Here, we 
use the lab strictly as a supple- 
ment to classroom instruction. 

Q: Are there any plans for 

A: Definitely. When the new 
classroom building i s erected 
we'll get two nice, big labs. The 
equipment in the present lab 
will probably be given to the 
speech or music department.

Rhea Speaks For The SGA 

By Milton Rhea 

When asked the primary function or 
purpose of Student Government, many 
students immediately say entertainment, 
and indeed, this can easily be true. Al- 
most everyone remembers SGA as being 
the sponsor of college concerts and 
dances, but this is not government in any 
sense of the word. SGA will have failed 
miserably if the Righteous Brothers be- 
comes our only accomplinshment for the 
year. Then what should we expect from 
Student Government? 

Take for example the Student Ser- 
vices Committee, which was set up to 
investigate the agencies of the bookstore, 
laundry, infirmary, student union, and 
dinning halls. This committee recently 
met for the first time and decided on 
some definite proposals toward a so- 
lution of the dinning hall problem. As a 
result, it was discovered that the new 
dining hall had no lines at several hours 
during the day and that the average wait 
in line at noon hour was twelve minutes. 
The person who gets to the dining hall 
first and is at the head of the line when 
it opens, waits the longest. The manager 
of the Food Services was contacted by a 
committee member and asked to publish 
a menu in advance. One committee mem- 
ber checked into the Office of Financial 
Aid and found the reasons for the work 
shortage. The Dean of Administration 
was contacted and advised the commit- 
tee that all of the new equipment for the 
dining hall had not arrived and that the 

[workers were not accustomed to that 
which had arrived. As a results of the 
committee, a study will be made of peak 
and slack hours of the dining hall in an 
effort to recommend alternate eating 
times for some students. It is impossible 
to feed everyone at once. Suggestion 
boxes will be placed in both dining halls 
and opened monthly by the committee 
in joint session with the College Admin- 
istration. This committee has a regularly 
scheduled meeting every two weeks and 
a monthly meeting with the president of 
the college. 

Student Government goes even be- 
yond this in its purpose. SGA is making 
a tighter check this year than ever be- 
fore on agencies which receive student 
money at registration. An effort is being 
made toward creating better morale and 
spirit among the students. A committee 
on Public Relations is investigating mass 
communications in an effort to better 
inform the student body. Public Rela- 
tions will also edit a monthly SGA bul- 
letin. Committees to find students inter- 
ested in SGA work and to recruit high 
school seniors with high scholastic stand- 
ing are being formed. SGA is seeking 
better faculty-student relations and bet- 
ter relations with Student Governments 
of other schools. 

This is all part of the plan and purpose 
of this year's SGA. These are long range 
programs which involve drastic changes 
in many cases. Purposes such as these 
cannot be accomplished overnight, but 
Student Government is providing a start. 

A Railroad Satire 

If You Happen To Live On Our Side Of The Tracks 

By Alice Anne Conner 

(Editor's note: Miss Conner is 
the Youthbeat editor for the 
Shreveport Journal. Here she 
takes a satirical shot at the age- 
old college problem of married 
housing— Vets Town, NSC, in par- 

The married students at 
NSC must surely have an ad- 
vantage over all others at- 
tending the college — the ones 
who live in Vets Town, that 

In case you aren't familiar with 
the term, "Vets Town," let me 
give you a brief rundown. Vets 
Town consists of several long 
buildings divided into numerous 
apartments owned by the school, 
which are rented to married stu- 
dents attending the college. 

People living in the apartments 

are divided into two groups — 
those who live in the right side 
of the tracks (closest to the 
school), and those who live on the 
wrong side of the tracks. 

The afore mentioned advan- 
tages belong solely to these occu- 
pants of the wrong-side. This I 
can vouch for from first hand ex- 
perience, for my spouse and I are 
members of this elite group. 

The first and foremost advan- 
tage to living in these unbeliev- 
able structures is the rent. For 
only $25 and $30 a month, couples 
are allowed to call these gems 

One of the most exciting as- 
pects of the so-called apartment 
is the kitchen. The stove, left 
over from prehistoric home eco- 
nomic classes, makes cooking a 
real adventure For example, one 
is never quite sure whether to 

allow 15 seconds or 15 minutes 
to brown the morning toast. 
Keeps you guessing. 

And the cabinet space! Now 
there's a piece of ingenious car- 
pentry. I'll bet it took those cabi- 
net makers untold hours to figure 
out the least accessible spots for 
storage. If you happen to be 
seven feet tall or three feet short, 
tfcey're ideal. Anywhere in be- 
tween and you're out of luck. 

Moving from the kitchen, let's 
take a peek at the bathroom. Act- 
ually one needn't move from the 
kitchen to get a view of the bath- 
room, for, placed in key positions 
along the walls are large holes 
which lead straight into said bath- 
room. This has its advantages in 
that you always know who's using 
your toilet — if you're interested. 

The shower (that's what they

Speakers Discuss 
Business Program 
At BE Meeting 

Here at NSC to better inform 
business students about the Dis- 
tributive Education program and 
to "recruit" future personnel 
were H. E. Ruppert, state director 
of distributive education, and 
D. L. Wallette, executive secre- 
tary of the Louisiana chapter of 
the Distributive Education Clubs 
of America. 

Ruppert and Wallette spoke 
last week at a meeting of DE and 
Business Education majors. Fol- 
lowing Wallette's address, Rup- 
pert answered questions by stu- 

"Wallette, who received his 
masters degree from NSC, told 
the group how the program bene- 
fited student, consumer, and busi- 
nessman. The student receives 
concentrated classroom and on- 
the-job training, the consumer 
gets better service, and the busi- 
nessman's individual training pro- 
gram is well supplemented. 

Wallette also urged the stu- 
dents to consider a career as a 
teacher-coordinator. In this posi- 
tion one teaches related subjects 
in the classroom and coordinates 
the training program in the var- 
ious training stations. There has 
always been a shortage of trained 
personnel in this area, he said.

Quarterly Issues 
Russell Index 

The latest issue of the DEEP 
TERLY, dated August, 1966, has 
reissued a publication put out by 
the Russell Library in 1963. 

The QUARTERLY, which is 
published by the Mobile Genealo- 
gical Society of Mobile, Alabama, 
is reproducing INDEX to Natchi- 
toches: Translations of Old 
French and Spanish Documents 
by Germaine Portre-Bobinski 
which was compiled by Sarah 
L. C. Clapp in 1963. 

The Library's supply of the 
INDEX has been exhausted for 
some time. Copies of the publica- 
tion have been requested by nu- 
merous libraries including the 
Bancroft Library of the Universi- 
ty of California, the Newberry 
Library of Chicago, and the Li- 
brary of the National Geographic 

out his application and mail it 
immediately in the envelope pro- 
ional Testing Service, P.O. Box 
988, Princeton, New Jersey 08540. 
Applications for the test must be 
postmarked no later than mid- 
night, October 21, 1966. 

According to Educational Test- 
ing Service, which prepares and 
administers the College Quali- 
fication Test for the Selective 
Service System, it will be greatly 
to the student's advantage to file 
his application at once. By regi- 
stering early, he stands the best 
chance of being assigned to the 
test center he has chosen. Be- 
cause of the possibility that he 
may be assigned to either of the 
testing dates it is very important 
that he list a center and center 
number for each date on which 
he will be available.

Pensacola Navy To Launch Aerial 
Offensive Against Demon Defense 

DICK REDING, number 84, leaps for the football during the North- 
east game. The big tight end caught a key pass near the end of the 
half to set up a field goal attempt. 

Cagers Will Depend On Clark, Wyatt 
When They Try For GSC Championship 

Football and the World Series 
are the topics of interest for most 
sports fans now, but for the round 
ball addicts, it wouldn't seem 
strange if the topic of basketball 
arose at a Fourth of July picnic. 

In the interest of this diehard 
breed, the Sauce sports staff has 
made a small scale investigation 
of the matter, and we have found 
that the 1966-67 Demon basket- 
ball team should be in the run- 
ning for the Gulf States Confer- 
ence Championship once again. 

Coach Tynes Hildebrand's quin- 
tet appears to have a potent nu- 
clus to build a fine team around. 

For the past three years, and 
especially the last season, the 
hoopsters have appeared to be 
headed for the league title only 
to lose out down the home

Neptune Club 
Discusses Events 

The Neptune Club held its first 
meeting of the year at the Nata- 
torium Sept. 29. 

Among the topics discussed 
were ideas for the Annual Water 
Show which is to be based around 
great moments in history. The 
Water Show will be presented 
around Christmas. 

A Fun Festival will be held 
Feb. 10, 11, 12 in Natchieoches. 
Twelve or thirteen colleges are 
expected to participate. Last year 
it was held in San Antonio, Tex. 

The Neptune Club expects to 
take a canoe trip down the Buf- 
falo River in Arkansas this 
spring. The club is sponsored by 
Mrs. Joyce Hillard. 

year will be two players who 
were picked for the Louisiana 
Sportswriters Association's all- 
GSC team last year. 

Senior David Clark was the 
leading scorer on the team last 
year while running second to 
James Wyatt in the team re- 
bounding department. 

Wyatt, who made the starting 
lineup as a freshman from Bel- 
mont, La., was the number two 
man in the scoring department. 

Several other cagers such as 
Delbert Thompson, Bill Ragland, 
Wayne Lee and Jerry McLaurin 
will be battling to hold down the 
other three spots that were va- 
cated by guards Lester Lee and 
Kenny Arthur and forward Billy 

In his first season as head 
coach, Hildebrand made his mark 
as a good coach when his team 
compiled an 18-7 record and a 9-3 
conference standing. 

His squad was in second place 
only one game behind Southwest- 
ern when loop play ended. 

Hildebrand predicts that South- 
western and perenially powerful 
Southeastern will provide the big- 
gest threats to a Demon champ-

Goshawks! The Pensacola Navy 
Goshawks will try to hand the 
Demons their first loss of the sea- 
son tomorrow night at Kane 
Field, Pensacola, Fla. 

Being a naval base instead of a 
college, the Goshawk squad is one 
of the most unique football 
teams in the country. For in- 
stance, each year they have no 
returning lettermen_ and very 
seldom do they have' a returning 
football coach. 

They're composed of an odd 
combination of ex-professional 
gridders, former collegiate play- 
ers and healthy looking Naval re- 
cruits that have an interest in the 

Leading the Naval attack will 
be Jim Parker, a former San 
Diego Charger quarterback who 
served as understudy to Tobin 
Rote while playing as a pro. 

Parker has already passed for 
over 500 yards this season while 
leading the Navy team through 
two victories and two defeats. 


In the opening game, the mili- 
tary gang downed East Central 
Oklahoma 17-8, then absorbed 
two straight defeats from Middle 
Tennessee (14-12) and McNeese 

Last week Coach Lieutenant 
Bob Moss's Goshawks bombarded 
Mexico Poly 48-0 with a passing 
attack that was too much for the 
south-of-the-border club. 

On the receiving end of many 
of these passes was end Skip Orr, 
who played four years at Anna- 
polis with Roger Staubach and 
who set a new Cotton Bowl pass 
receiving record in 1964. 

Other sparkplugs in the offense 
are halfback Dale Hawley of San 
Diego State and John Elstead of 
California University. 

Lineman J. J. Ryan and middle 
guard Bruce Kenton are stand- 
outs on defense so far this sea- 

Old acquaintances will be re- 
newed when Mickey Strother, an 
ex-La. Tech Bulldog, gets into the 

Other schools represented by 
Pensacola players are Florida, 
Yale, Utah, Iowa State, Tennes- 
see, Syracuse, Harvard, Missouri, 
and even Army. 

Although the Goshawks have 
exceptional talent and a potent 
passing offense, their recently 
formed team lacks unity on de- 

Quarterback Don Guidr y illus- 
trated this last year against a 
similar Pensacola squad by pass- 
ing for three touchdowns and 186 


Quarterbacks Don Guidry and 
Malcolm Lewis, said by many to 
be the best two quarterbacks in 
the Gulf States Conference, 
guided their teammates to a 23-14 
triumph over Northeast in a rug- 
ged, hard hitting GSC game Sat- 
urday night. 

Cheers came up from the In- 
dian fans early in the game when 
Ronnie Sumner recovered a 
fumble on the Demon 19. Quar- 
terback Steve Mansur guided his 
team to the two-yard line and 
then passed to end Floyd Giblin 
for the first score. 

Clark Blake did the kicking, 
and at the end of the first quar- 
ter the score read 7-0. 

Malcolm Lewis got the NSC of- 
fense rolling in the second quar- 
ter with a couple of multi-yard 

songs. They were accompanied by 
the twirling Demonettes. 

Also livening spirits were the 
cheerleaders, who lead the stu- 
dent body in several familiar 

The event was culminated after 
the band finished the Alma Ma- 

passes to end Steve Gaspard, a 
ten-yard quarterback roll-out and 
a two-yard touchdown carry by 
fullback Barry Fresh. 

Lewis added the extra point to 
tie the score 7-7. 

Late in the second quarter the 
Indians were forced to punt. Al 
Dodd grabbed the ball and 
dodged his way across midfield 
to the Indian 32. After two off- 
setting 15-yard penalties, Neal 
Prather ground out a path to the 
23. Then Guidry hit Reding at 
the 12. 

With only seconds remaining 
in the half, Lewis came back onto 
the field and booted a 16-yard 
three-pointer that put Northeast 
behind 10-7 as the buzzer 


As soon as play resumed, Dodd 
went to work again by returning 

another punt 21 yards to the 
Northeast 34. Prather and Gary 
Pittman ate up the yards with 
running plays until Prather broke 
loose at the 14 and raced to the 
end zone 

Ronnie Fountain's 73-yard kick- 
off return and a 21-yard touch- 
down pass from Mansur to Giblin 
put the Indians right back in the 
game by making the score 17-14. 

When Guidry got his hands on 
the ball again, he put together a 
68-yard drive, with the final 
touchdown coming on a 17-yard 
pass to Gaspard. Lewis missed the 
point after touchdown, leaving 
the score 23-14. 

Early in the fourth quarter, the 
Demon defensive unit made a 
stubborn goal line stand that pre- 
vented a closer score. The In- 
dians threatened once again, but 
had to settle for a missed field 
goal from the Demon 12. 

By Sports Staff 

Bill Carter, sports editor of the Alexandria "Town Talk" 
recently made some stinging statements in his column abottt 
the Demon football team and Coach Jack Clayton. 

This all occurred after La. College had been trounced 49-0. 
Evidently, Carter was a little disappointed in both teams as 
he indicated: 

"The Demons partially spoiled their magnificent per- 
formance with bush-league penalties. Both teams resembled 
sand-lotters with their silly personal fouls and other penalties. 
These violations could wreck the Demons in tough ball 

Carter goes on: 

"One big Demon, who isn't good enough to play regularly, 
went into the game on one play, conked an unsuspecting La. 
College player with a forearm, knocking him almost dizzy, 
and then trotted off the field with a big grin, as if he had 
accomplished something — hitting a guy from the rear with- 
out an official seeing it." 

Carter's eyesight must have improved, because I under- 
stand through the grapevine that he was having trouble 
seeing the La. College numerals earlier in the game. To see 
one individual intentionally hit another without one of the 
four officials seeing it is amazing enough, but to see the 
player grinning through helmet and face guard is fascinating. 

Carter expressses his disapproval of Clayton "running up 
the score": 

"I was a little disappointed in Coach Clayton, too. Jack is 
a fine person and a good friend. His willingness to run up 
the score on a helpless opponent isn't in his makeup. Not 
until after the score was 42-0 did Clayton turn the game over 
to the bench. 

And in the final minute, two of the key players, Guidry 
and Reding, returned " 

Clayton sent Guidry and Reding back into the game to 
replace the fatigued second stringers that had been playing 
the larger part of the second half. Clayton's Demons are only 
two deep on offense. , 


After going one for three on the predictions last week, 
someone suggested that the sports staff not even mention 
our .333 percentage. 

But we're proud that we got the big one by picking the 
Demons over Northeast 21-20 with the actual score being 

This week: 

NORTHWESTERN 38— Pensacola Navy 21— The Demon 
secondary should be able to manage the Goshawk passing 
game, but they might break through for a few scores. 

Northeast 28-La. College 10— Indians should handle the 
Baptists with ease. 

Louisiana Tech 17— Arkansas State 0— Tech will come 
to life one of these days. 

Others: McNeese 14— Arlington State3, Southwestern 27— 
Lamar Tech 21 and Southeastern 13— Trinity 0.

Tackles, Linebackers Can Pass, Too 

By Steve Gunn 

The biggest five letter word to 
success is pride. When you do 
something great, 99 percent of it 
is attitude. Or Hurry! Hustle! 
And Hit! 

Next time don't ask the psycho- 
logy teacher what the course is 
all about, ask a football coach — 
because sometimes he's smarter 
than the fans think. 

These days it's hard to pass 
through Prather Coliseum with- 
out seeing a poster of a dead 
wildcat lying stiffly on its back 
with four paws sticking straight 
up in the air or maybe a picture 
of a sadistic looking cowboy say- 
ing, "The only good Indian is a 
dead Indian." 

Everything is becoming more 
complex, and preparing a football 
team for the next game is no 
easy task. 

For the past five years Coach 
Jack Clayton and his staff have

ing a round of rush activities. The 
new pledge class was feted Sun- 
day at breakfast at the sorority's 
house and again at a banquet 
Sunday at Broadmoor restaurent. 

Sigma Kappa actives made ad- 
vance preparations this summer 
for their three rush parties. The 
girls met in July at Natchitoches 
and again at Shreveport in Au- 
gust to coordinate their fall act- 

Heading the sorority for the 
1966-67 year will be Susan Mas- 
sey, president; Barbara Wallace, 
vice-president; Mickie Varnado, 
second vice-president; Sally Dorr, 
recording secretary; Judy Wood, 
treasurer; Pat Smith, correspond- 
ing secretary; Paula Cali, senior 
Panhellenic delegate; and Nan 
Roser, junior Panhellenic dele- 

The eighteen coeds making up 
the pledge class are: Sue Bo- 
bo, Sue Cambre, Kathy Duvall, 
Kathleen Eddleman, Ann Gibson, 
Peggy Greene, Linda Hollings- 
worth, Ellyn MacPherson, Jan 
Mancuso, Claudia Neal, Pam Pra- 
et, Christy Rader, Pam Roberts,

Christmas Booths 
Available Now 
For Renting 

Campus organizations interest- 
ed in renting space for river bank 
concession booths at the annual 
Christmas Festival Saturday, Dec. 
2, should contact Dr. Tandy W. 
McElwee at the Counseling and 
Testing Center. 

Rental of space, approximately 
18 to 20 feet wide by 18 feet deep, 
is $35.00. Organizations are re- 
sponsible for construction of the 
booth, furnishing electrical out- 
lets and switchboxes where need- 
ed, and removal of the booth after 
the Festival. 

Rentals are on a first come, 
first served basis, according to 
Dr. McElwee. 


Monday through Friday, the 
Art Department will sponsor 
an exibition of thirty-five 
woodcuts in the Art Gallery 
of the Fine Arts Building. The 
Gallery will be open from 9 in 
the morning until 4 in the aft- 
ernoon. All cuts will be on 
sale for prices ranging from 
$5 to $25. The whole collection 
was made by William J. Breit- 
enbach of Sam Houston State 

been utilizing psychological war- 
fare even though they might call 
it something else. 

Such tactics as grading players 
on their performances, passing 
out stars for moments of brilli- 
ance on the field, and presenting 
player performance evaluation 
sheets to the squad members are 
all weapons in this war. 

Clayton and his staff feel that 
if an athlete is shown that he is 
or is not performing well, he will 
either try to improve or he will 
continue to perform well with 
additional confidence and pride. 

For instance, every time the 
Demons play a football game, 
each man is graded on every play 
that takes place during the game, 
and this takes many watchful 
eyes looking on from the sideline 
such as red shirts, assistant 
coaches, water boys, bench warm- 
ers, etc. 

If a player is in the right spot 
and makes the right moves on 
80 percent or better of the plays, 
he gets a "Red mark" which 
means, according to the Clayton 
curve, that he is playing like a 
Gulf States Conference champion. 

When a gridder scores 70-79 
percent, he's given a "Blue mark" 

and this indicates that he wants 
to win more than he wants to 
lose. Now if the rating is 60-69 
percent, the player will receive a 
"Green mark" and the participant 
will look good losing. 

Below the "Green mark" means 
a "Yellow grade" which is the 
equivalent of a "D" or an "F" 
academically speaking. No foot- 
ball player likes to be called 

Independent of the grading sys- 
tem is the "Star system" which 
includes only those that make an 
outstandingly spectacular play. 

Stars are given to gridders to 
wear on their helmets during 
practice if they intercept a pass, 
block a punt, cause a fumble, re- 
cover a fumble and so on. 

In the Louisiana College game, 
Al Dodd and Meyer Irby looked 
like generals when they went out 
on the practice field Monday, be- 
cause each had just been awarded 
two big silver stars. 

Other guys who hurried, hustled 
and hit with a positive attitude 
and won stars are Steve Gaspard, 
David Centanni, Ken Ferro, La- 
tino, Gerald Malley, Ronnie 
Whatley, Mace Morris, David Lo- 
vich and Paul Alonzo.

Tennessee Williams Drama Coming 

"Alvarez Kelly" 

William Holden, Richard Wid- 

Starts Sunday, Oct. 9 at the Don 

The Civil War is raging, and 
Northern-bound William Holden 
(Alvarez Kelly) manages to get 
himself and thousands of prime 
specimen of beef sidetracked by 
the Confederate Cavalry. 

Colonel Richard Widmark, by 
using one of Holden's fingers for 
target practice convinces him 
that Dixie has greater need of all 
those cows than does the United 

Never one to do things half- 
heartedly, Holden not only trains 
the Rebels in cattle driving tech- 
niques; but accompanies Wid- 
mark on a Yankee raid as well. 

The film reaches a spectacular 
climax as lots of mooing mam- 
mals overrun hundreds of sold- 
iers and a vital military position. 

"This Property is Condemned" 
Natalie Wood, Robert Redford 
Begins Sunday, Oct. 9 at the Cane 

It is the 1930's and Natalie 
Wood, darling of the proletarian 
set inhabiting her mother's board- 
house, is leading a gay existence. 
Things get even gayer when an 
attractive stranger (Robert Red- 
ford) checks in. 

Actually, he's an old meanie 
who's come to lay off most of the 
boarders from their jobs. Con- 
fronted with this information La 
Wood decides that she's fond of 
him in spite of it; and allows her- 
self to be kissed. 

Momma, however, does not re- 
ceive the news so docilely; for it 
means the likely demise of her 
profitable establishment. 

Intent on stabilizing her some- 
what shakey future, she puts into 
effect a plan involving Natalie 
and a rather anemic gentleman 
named Johnson (John Harding). 

Alas, her wicked manipula- 
tions prove to be the beginning 
of the end for poor Miss Wood.

ROTC Announces Leaders For Year 
Black Knights Begin Practices 

Boasting an enrollment of up- 
wards of 350 cadets, the 1966 
ROTC program is in full swing, 
and after three drill periods, the 
corps of cadets is starting to 
show some real "polish." 

The development of an ROTC 
program can be measured by the 
contant desire to change and 
adapt the unit to make it better, 
and this year is no exception. 
Cadets will receive training on 
the latest weapons on the Army 
defense team, in addition to be- 
ing exposed to the finest tech- 
niques in military leadership and 
general military knowledge. And 
all this with but one goal in mind, 
to make good Army officers.

year is Jeffrey L. Ellis, and his 
staff consists of Executive Offi-

You Can't Take It . . . 

Comedy Opens Tuesday At 8 In Little Theatre 

By Alice Anne Conner 

The madcap Sycamore family, 
a group of rugged individualists 
who do exactly as they please and 
hence invoke the admiration of 
conservative souls who envy 
them their uninhibited happiness, 
will cavort across the stage of the 
Northwestern State College Little 
Theatre in all their daffy delight- 

Dr. Edna West's production of 
"You Can't Take It With You," 
the comedy which won a Pulitzer 
Prize in drama for Moss Hart and 
George Kaufman, will open on 
the Little Theatre stage at 8 p.m. 
this coming Tuesday, Oct. 18, 
with additional performances 
Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 
19 and 20. 

The zany Sycamores who, upon 
close analysis, prove to be more 
sensible than one might at first 
imagine, believe life is to be lived 
and enjoyed to the hilt. They re- 
fuse to let such prosaic things 
as convention or appearances 
stand in the way of their pur- 
suit of happiness. 

The one member of the family 
who objects to the unconventional 
activities of the others is the 
daughter, Alice, who, hoping to 
marry the son of her wealthy and 
dignified boss, fears that her 
dream has been shattered when 
he drops in to visit the manic 

As things turn out, however, the 

scene is a bit of a mixup but you 
can bet it was all part of the plans 
of Dr. Edna West and Frank Ma- 
gers to take full advantage of the 
classic comedy, "You Can't Take 
It With You." Here, Mrs. Alice 
Anne Conner awakes from a binge 
to discover Jim Mambourg in a 
staggering pose of antiquity. 

boss and his family — like theatre- 
goers over the years — fall under 
the charming spell of the Syca- 
mores and their unorthodox way 
of life. The "normal" daughter 
of the "adnormal" family has to 
re-assess her own thinking a bit 
and evolve a whole new set of 

Frank Magers, technical direc- 
tor for the college theatre, has 
had to devise a set in which all 
the varied activities of the clan 

can be carried on simultaneously. 
This is no small task in view of 
the fact that Grandpa likes to 
throw darts and hunt snakes, 
Paul enjoys manufacturing ex- 
plosive s in the basement, 
Essie performs ballet sequences 
and Penelope writes plays on a 
typewriter delivered to the house 
by mistake. 

The household is further com- 
plicated by Mr. DePinna, a con- 
genial ice man who has been a 

house guest for eight years and 
who assists Paul in his fire-works- 
making business. 

An "intoxicating" actress, a 
Grand Duchess, and several house- 
hold servants, not to mention 
various friends, neighbors and 
curious observers of the Syca- 
more style of living, add to the 
hilarity and keep the already 
jumping joint moving along at a 
precipitous pace. 

Sam Shelton will portray 

Grandpa Vanderhof in the pro- 
duction with Pat Delano as Pen- 
ny Sycamore. Barbara Gresham 
will be seen as Alice Sycamore 
and Gordon Parker will portray 
Tony Kirby. 

Others in the large cast include 
Leah Luckett as Essie, Jim 
O'Quinn as Paul Sycamore, Jim 
Mambourg as Mr. DePinna, Har- 
vey Wilson as Donald, Nick Pol- 
lacia as Boris Kolenkov, Alice 
Anne Conner as Gay Wellington, 
Susie Chancy as Mrs Kirby, Chris 
Brand as Mr. Kirby, Lane Fon- 
tenot as Henderson, Tommy 
Davis as Ed, Karen Dowty as 
Rebah, and Pat Swafford as Olga. 
Robert Conner, Jerry McLaurin, 
and John Braden will portray 
three "J-Men." Serving as stage 
manager will be Judy Causey. 

"You Can't Take It With You," 
which won an Academy Award 
when presented in film version, 
is one of the many notable Hart- 
Kaufman collaborations noted for 
witty dialogue and deftly-drawn, 
if somewhat exaggerated, charac- 

Among their other noteworthy 
collaborative efforts are "I'd 
Rather Be Right," a musical com- 
edy which poked affectionate fun 
at Franklin D. Roosevelt; "The 
Man Who Came to Dinner," a 
thinly-veiled cai>cature of the 
author and racounteur, Alexan- 
der Woollcott; and "George Wash- 
ington Slept Here," a satire on 
suburban life. 

"You Can't Take It With You" 
has been cited as "the great A- 
merican comedy." It is a play for 
those who bewail the over-em- 
phasis on "social status" preval- 
ent in today's society and who 
believe that life can, indeed, be 
one long, delightful adventure for 
those who have the courage to 
make it so.

The Year 2052 A.D. 

New Political Concept? 

A Revised Edition Of The Gettysburg Address 


(The Collegiate Press Service) 
(As presented by Little Boy 
Johnson, president of the United 
States and grandson of a former 
President whom we all know and 
love. The address was delivered 
at the dedication of the Ameri- 
can military cemetery "Gettys- 
burg East," outside of Saigon in 
the year 2052.) 

Mah fellow Americans: 
Foah score and seven yeahs 
ago, my granfather brought forth 
upon this continent of Asia a 
new political concept, conceived 
in expediency and dedicated to 
the proposition that we are better 
dead than red. 

Now we are engaged in a Great 
Society (oops, I mean a Great 
Civil War), and for that matter 

have been engaged in that Great 
Civil War for four score and 
seven years now, testing whether 
that concept of a permanent 
American military presence in 
Asia or any concept so ill-con- 
ceived and so ineptly executed, 
can long endure. 

We are met on a great battle- 
field of that war, a battlefield 
where General Ky was over- 
thrown by General Hee, where 
General Hee was overthrown by 
General Me, where General Me 
was overthrown by General Wee, 
where General Wee was over- 
thrown by General Gee, and so 
forth through the 56 different 
coups that finally culminated last 
spring in General Flea's govern- 
ment, which we are now con- 
vinced is in a position to bring to 

this nation the political stability 
that is so necessary if we are to 
begin to effectively roll back the 
aggression from the north. 

Excuse me folks, I just re- 
ceived an urgent note. (Oh no, 
not again.) Hrrumph. What I 
meant was the 57 coups which 
finally culminated in General 
She's coup three minutes ago 
which we are finally convinced is 
in a position to at last offer this 
nation the political stability that 
is. . . . 

Hmmrph. Be that as it may. 
We have come to dedicate this 
battlefield as a fitting memorial 
to the light to moderate losses 
that our forces have sustained 
over the past 87 years so that my 
grandfather and his successors 
could test the theory that the 

way to bring Hanoi to the peace 
table was to escalate further. 

It is altogether fitting and pro- 
per that we should do this, and 
anyone who thinks otherwise is 
a nervous nellie and probably a 
traitor besides and simply help- 
ing to prolong the war. 

The world will long note and 
long remember what we did here, 
probably because we will still be 
long doing it, but the world will 
probably never understand WHY 
we did it. 

And frankly, I'm fed up with 
that kind of idiotic questioning 
emanating from the capitals of 
the world over the last nine de- 

68,000,000 MEN. ONLY THEN 

And as long as I am president, 
mah fellow Americans, I promise 
you this: we shall not withdraw, 
I promise that this nation, under 
me, shall have a new birth of 
conformity (boy we shut up those 
peaceniks) and that government 
of consensus, by manipulation for 
the sake of saving face shall not 
perish from the earth, although 
admittedly the population might. 

TV Acquires Some Classy Quality 
With Miller, Williams, Chekov Plays 


by Joe Landrum 

Self-styled T.V. critics who 
once disdainfully sniffed, 
"Afraid I don't own a tele- 
vision machine," are beginn- 
ing to find that they really 
have nothing to brag about. 

Those bragging now are the 
major broadcasting companies 
who have started tucking in, 
between the daily doses of trivia, 
an occasional hour or two of qua- 
lity entertainment. 

This season, Columbia Broad- 
casting System has plans for an 
exciting new show which, if well 
received, could cause some start- 
ling innovations in the television 

CBS Playhouse is baised on the 
theory that a large portion of the 
viewing population responds 
favorably to dramatic presenta- 
tions, when given the chance. 

Audiences around the nation 
will be given several chances this 
Fall. Besides Authur Miller's "The 
Crucible" and Tennessee Wil- 
liams' "The Glass Menagerie," 
CBS Playhouse will present works 
by many eminent playwrights. 

Additional programs which 
should considerably titillate the 
intelligentsia are: Anton Chek- 
hov's "Ivanov" interpreted by 
Sir John Gielgud; "Mark Twain 
Tonight," featuring the remark- 
able Hal Holbrook; and Emlyn 
Williams in a broadcast devoted 
to the works of Charles Dickens. 

Those who prefer entertainment 

Three pairs of glasses and two 
sets of car keys, ail lost during

ter, located next to the Demon's 

in a lighter vein will be happy to 
learn that the incomparable Lu- 
cille Ball has invaded the British 
capital for an hour length special, 
"Lucy in London." 

In a 60-minute variety show, 
Red Skelton will pay tribute to 
the most popular members of the 
circus world, the clowns. 

Carol Burnett, Dick Van Dyke, 
Andy Griffith and Jim Nabors 
will star in comedy specials de- 
signed to show to advantage the 
unique talents of each. 

Charlie Brown and other Pea- 
nuts favorites will make two 
television appearances this Fall — 
"Charlie Brown's Halloween" will 
be followed by the Peabody 
Award-Winning "A Charlie Brown 

The National Geographic Soci- 
ety will sponsor such educational 
programs as "Alaska," in which 
a member of the National Geo- 

graphic staff and his family take 
a memorable trip through the 49- 
th state. 

Spotlighting numerous politi- 
cal events social problems, CBS 
News will present broadcasts 
dealing with the November elec- 
tions, China, mental health, labor 
unions, tenements, air pollution 
and prisions. 

It will also continue its series 
of audience-test programs — this 
year focusing on physical fitness, 
science and news events. 

Early in the season, CBS News 
will take a look at a "Young Mr. 
Eisenhower," with the former 
president appearing at his boy- 
hood home in Abilene, Tex., and 
at West Point. 

In short, noted writers, pro- 
ducers, actors and newsmen have 
joined forces this Fall to make 
sure that the key word in CBS 
television viewing is quality.

About That Pop Quiz. . . 

John Holt, an educator and author of 
"Why Children Fail," observes that cur- 
rent school methods destroy love of 
learning by encouraging students to 
work for petty rewards, for the "ignoble 
satisfaction of feeling they are better 
than someone else." 

Dr. Eli Ginzberg, a New York re- 
searcher, made a recent study and dis- 
covered that students who had graduated 
from college with honors, who had won 
scholastic medals or who had been 
elected to Phi Beta Kappa were more 
likely to be in the lower professional 
performance levels than those students 
who had not distinguished themselves 
while in college. 

Another seurvey proved that there 
is almost no relationship between the 
grades a medical student gets and his 
later performance. 

These are hard facts that spit in the 
face of those educators who propose 
such trivia as the "pop test," frequent 
chapter tests, and countless assignments 
as an inspiration to study. Popularity of 
teachers and student evaluation of such 
teachers made public to the students of 
any college could rate high as a counter 
move to this ideology. 

By forcing the educator and the state 
boards (who, judging from their attend- 
ance regulations, at least in Louisiana, 
are unaware of the fact that the lecture 
was meant primarily as a substitute for 
the lack of texts) into an open appraisal, 
something could be done about the na- 
tional situation in the ranks of "grade- 
directed and inspired teachers."

You see, there're these dia- 
monds; and naturally, Modesty 
(Monica Vitti) and her Cockney 
sidekick (Terence Stamp) must 
get them safely delivered to the 
Middle East. 

Of course, things arn't made 
any easier for them by that 
ubiquitous arch villian (Dirk 
Bogarde) who does his darndest 
to foil their vital mission. 

"Not much of a plot," you say; 
"but it must have redeeming 
qualities." Well, Newsweek maga- 
zine could find nary a one. "Mode- 
sty Blaise stumbles through its 
paces without wit, point, or taste," 
it rants. 

"Mademoiselle" critics, how- 
ever, took a more moderate view. 
Bogarde, it seems, saves the film 
from oblivion. "He plays Firbank-

It is well before the turn of the

have just arrived out West with 
their English Hereford, Vindi- 

Incongruous as it may seem, 
these two ladies have some ad-

tle; and they aim to try them out. 

They are aided in their schemes 
by James Stewart, a local tatter-

He soon finds that his job is 
not an easy one, as a panting ad- 
mirer intimates to Miss O'Hara 
that unless things begin to hap- 
pen — and quickly — Vindicator 
may end up as hamburger meat. 

And then there's Brian Keith, 
the prosperous, cattle-baron type 
who figures romantically in Miss 
O'Hara's life. 

"Lots of rugged, outdoor scen- 
ery," says Time magazine; "and 
a sort of 4H sexiness. The princi-

Doubled Number 
Name Psychology 
As Major Study 

Doubled again, for the third 
successive year, is the number of 
students pursuing a degree with 
a major in psychology. 

Beginning with seven in the 
first year the major in psycho- 
logy was offered, the number 
jumped to 18 in 1964, to 38 last 
fall, and to 80 this fall. This 
rapid increase in psychology ma- 
jors at Northwestern, according 
to Dr. Caesar B. Moody, head of

flects the similar trend in col- 
leges and universities all over the 

Dr. Moody estimates that the 
supply of qualified psychologists, 
however, is still less than a third 
of the demand. If the national 
trend prevails at Northwestern, 
he says, the college will have 150 
to 200 students majoring in psy- 
chology within the next two

New Math-Science Education Centers 
Discussed By Faculty, School Leaders 

The first of two meetings to 
discuss the possible establishment 
at Northwestern of a Science and 
Mathematics Education Center 
and a Conservation and Resource- 
Use Education Center and con- 
servation programs were held 
Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in Room 
209 of Warren Easton Hall. 

A committee of faculty per- 
sons from science and education 
divisions of the college, local 
schol leaders including teachers, 
principals and supervisors, repre- 
sentatives of the State Depart- 
ment of Education, and industrial 
leaders assembled Wednesday 
afternoon to discuss the proposed 
Science and Mathematics Educa- 
tion Center. 

Primary among the objectives 
of such a Center would be the 
training of teachers of science to 
staff the schools of Louisiana and 
prvision of in-service educational 
prgrams for the State's teachers. 

Northwestern envisions a Cen- 
ter, with an excellent staff, which 
would cooperate with area 

schools and school officials in de- 
velopment of model programs in 
elementary school science junior 
high school science, biology, 
chemistry and physics. 

Placement Office 
Sets Interview 

On Oct. 18, 1966, representa- 
tives of the Federal Career Ser- 
vice will be at the NSC Place- 
ment Office. Individual inter- 
views can be arranged by con- 
tacting the Placement Office now. 

These representatives are pre- 
pared to answer questions and 
advise students on career op- 
portunities in the Federal Ser- 
vice, according to Louis S. Lyon, 
Regional Director for the Dallas 
Region, U. S. Civil Service Com- 
mission. He said the Federal 
Government, the nation's largest 
employer, affords opportunities 
for graduatees of any discipline. 

Art student keeps getting the brush-off. 


I'm a regular Renoir on the canvas, but on campus I just don't seem 
to make the scene. There was one campus cutie that used to admire my 
paintings, but now she's too busy admiring some guy's new Dodge 
Dart. She says riding in this guy's Dart is like art; every time they go out, 
they draw a crowd. What can I do? ! just have to see this girl again. 
It's not that I'm in love with her, I haven't finished her portrait yet. 



Make your next sitting at your Dodge Dealer's. After you find out how 
easy it is to own a Dart, you'll be out painting the town. And don't 
worry about finishing the portrait. With Dart, you'll find you have ma 
models to choose from. Get the picture? 

Here's the picture that's worth a thousand ah's. '67 Dodge Dart GT. Dart gives you more 
show and go than ever before, and it still has that nice low price. Plus a long list of standard 
equipment. Like padded instrument panel, padded sun visors, outside rearview mirror, 
carpeting and so much more.

Facing Tech Again 

The Headliners: A Demon/and Football History 

By Jim Hawthorne 

"DEMONS WIN 134-0" 
11-0-0 SEASON" 

HEADLINES THAT have contri- 
buted to the history of football 
here at Demonland. 

With football season in full 
force and the annual battle with 
Tech just around the corner, it 
might prove interesting to look 
at the history of the game at NSC. 

Record books show results of 
seasons as far back as 1908 and 
earlier yearbooks seem to indi- 
cate participation in the sport 
even earlier. 

The first mention of a coach is 
Professor W. F. Coolidge in 1908, 
followed by J.H. Griffith in 1909. 
From 1910-12 Dr. C. G. Pool was 
head mentor. Then in 1913 the 
late H. Lee Prather, to whom the 
NSC Coliseum is dedicated, be- 
came head coach and athletic di- 
rector. Harry (Rags) Turpin held 
down the job from 1934-56 when 
current NSC head coach and ath- 
letic director Jack Clayton step- 
ped in. 

Prather and LSU 

In 55 years NSC has had only 
three football head coaches which 
should be a record of some sort. 

During Prather's 20 years as 
head football coach, he amassed 
a 72-44-11 mark— with 1917, 1918, 
and 1919 set aside, since the De- 
mons didn't field teams those 

In those early days it was not 
unusual for NSC, then called 
Louisiana Normal, to play high 
school teams because of the lack 
of College competition. This did 
not bring about the most interest- 
ing games however, as is shown 

in the 1915 game against Monroe 
High School. NSC won that one 

This was not always the case 
though as in 1921 the Demons 
had a hard time defeating Nat- 
chitoches High 14-0. 

During Prather's coaching ca- 
reer, LSU was a Demon opponent 
for seven years. That series ended 
with the Demons losing all and 
never scoring a point against the 
Tigers. Their worst defeat was 
78-0 in 1921 and the closest they 
came to victory was a 13-0 loss 
in 1922. 

The Tech Years 

In the rival series with La. 
Tech, Prather had a winning 
record of 6-5-2. The worst defeat 
by Tech during this period was 
33-2 in 1923, and the Demons 
shut the Bulldogs out 33-0 in 1927 
and 1932 for their biggest wins. 

Prather also led the Demons 
to one of their two undefeated 
seasons, an 8-0-0 record in 1932. 
Harry (Rags) Turpin took over 
from Prather after the 1933 sea- 
son as head football coach, but 
Prather stayed as basketball 
coach for 38 years and became 
president of the college in 1950. 

Turpin guided the Demons 
through 22 football seasons to a 
record of 101-83-11. 1943 was lost 
to the war and no team was 

In his sixth year at NSC the 
Demons had their best ball club 
ever, finishing the season with 
an 11-0-0 record. During that 
year they scored 195 points while 
allowing their opponents only 18. 
They allowed six points in three 
games and shut out eight teams. 
J. W. Gaspard, whose son Steve 
is a freshman end for NSC, played 
on that ball club. 

Graduate Fellowships Open For Inquiry 
To Students Planning Teaching Career 

Inquires about the Danforth 
Graduate Fellowships, to be a- 
warded in March, 1967, are in- 
vited, according to Dean George 
Stokes. The inquiries can be 
made at Dean Stokes' office, lo- 
cated in Caldwell Hall. 

The fellowships, offered by the 
Danforth Foundation of St. Louis, 
are open to men and women who 
are seniors or recent graduates of 
accredited colleges in the United 
States, who have serious interest 
in college teaching as a career, 
and who plan to study for a Ph. D. 
in a field common to the under- 
graduate college. 
Applicants may be single or mar- 
ried, must be less than 30 years 
of age at the time of application, 
and may not have undertaken any 
graduate or professional study 
beyond the baccalaureate. 

Approximately 120 Fellowships 

will be awarded in March. Candi- 
dates must be nominated by lia- 
ison officers of their undergrad- 
uate institutions by Nov. 1, 1966. 
The Foundation does not accept 
direct applications for the Fellow- 

Danforth Graduate Fellows are 
eligible for four years of financial 
assistance, with a maximum an- 
nual living stipend of $2400 for 
single Fellows and $2950 for mar- 
ried Fellows, plus tuition and 
fees. Dependency allowances are 
available. Financial need is not 
a condition for consideration. 

Danforth Fellows may hold 
other fellowships such as Ford, 
Fulbright, National Science, Rho- 
des, Woodrow Wilson, etc., con- 
currently, and will be Danforth 
Fellows without stipend until the 
other awards lapse.

It was during Turpin's career 
that the Gulf States Conference 
was formed. The Demons finished 
in a tie for first with Tech in 
1953, after winding up last in '51 
and '52. 

As far as the series with Tech 
is concerned, Turpin's Demons 
won 6, lost 16, and tied 2 from 

The Bulldogs trampled NSC 
32-0 in 1936 for the most lopsided 
score, and the best the Demons 
could do was 26-0 during the un- 
defeated 1939 campaign. Turpin 
resigned as head coach in 1956 
due to illness after only six games 

had been played, leaving the De- 
mons without a head coach for 
the rest of the season. 

The Clayton Years 
In 1957 Jack Clayton opened his 
career as NSC head football 
coach and since has garnered a 
49-35-2 record through nine sea- 
sons. The Demons under the 
leadership of Clayton have come 
up with five winning seasons and 
four losers, the best being 8-2-0 
in 1958 and the worst 3-6-0 in 

During his nine years, Clayton's 
Demons have lost to Tech six 
times and won only three. The 

worst defeat was last year when 
Tech bombed the Demons 42-14. 
Most of the games have been 
rather close with a 19-2 win in 
1962 being NSC's greatest mar- 
gin of victory. 

As far as the Gulf States Con- 
ference is concerned, the De- 
mons won the crown undisputedly 
for its first and only time in 1962 
and tied for first in '57 and '58. 

Coach Clayton played under 
both Prather and Turpin while 
a member of the NSC Demon 
football team himself, making the 
history of Demon coaches even 
more remarkable.

Waif Book When 

By Francis Toler 

The lonesome whistling of wind 

through pines on a cold night 

The chattering of teeth breaking 
the winter stillness. . . .Phantom- 
like figures darting down a dirt 
path bathed in moonlight 

Salem witches dashing through 
the forest to a rendezvous with 
Satan? No, NSC coeds on their 
way to the bathhouses for a quick 
dip back in 1900. 

The slamming of a door breaks 
the eerie silence, and once again 
the shadowy figures slip down the 
frozen path. Their destination is 
the sleeping porches that served 
as dormitories for 100 women 

The girls are greeted by a 
stern-faced matron who sees her 
charges safely to "beddy-by." As 
this guardian angel retreats down 
the hall, the girls spring to action. 

Beds are pushed together as 
fortresses against the possible 
invasion of snow that slips 
through the screens like cake 
flour through a flour sift. Then, 
the coeds snuggle beneath heaps 
of blankets to sleep until the 
clang of the bell ends their 

Morning comes and the "ladies 
of the Normal" gobble "rock 
candy" biscuits and dash to class- 
es in Caldwell Hall, a wooden 
forerunner of the present struc- 

After classes, they return to 
the dorms where they huddle 
around Ben Franklin stoves that 
are fired by coal pulled up by a 
pulley through a window. 

Ben with his stove was the only 
man around the dorm since a girl 
could not entertain a gentleman 
in the living room. Neither could 
a coed stop to talk to a boy after 
class. Furthermore, there were 
no midnight concaves behind the 
pines because all men had to be 
off campus at sunset. 

This sexual segregration led to 
the forming of the so-called 
literary societies. These Saturday 
night get-togethers were the only 
time that male and female were 
allowed to breathe the same air 
except in classes. 

Females were also prohibited 
from attending movies and riding 
in cars. A girl violating these 
rules might find herself minus

her all-too-few privileges, or 
spending the rest of the quarter 
at home with "momma." 

For all this happiness the coeds 
paid the grand sum of $36 a 
month. All this joy could be had 
by the coed for 46 weeks a year, 
if her heart could stand the strain. 

However, on the bright side, 
she could attend lawn parties 
given by the faculty during the 
spring and fall quarters. And, if 
she was lucky enough to have 
friends in town, she could eat 
Sunday dinner with them — if she 
was invited. 

Since social life was so limited, 
one coed turned to composing 
poetry. Her "epic" appeared in 
the first POTPOURRI, printed in 
1909. An excerpt reads like this: 

Little lonesome Mary says that 
when the blaze is blue, 

An' all the lights sputter, and 
the wind goes woo-oo, 

An' you hear the watchman 
walking and the moon is gray; 

An' the senses in your brain is 
all gone away. 

You better mind the Matron, an' 
your teachers fond and dear, 

An cherish them that loves you, 
an' dry the lonesome tear. 

An' keep out of MISCHIEF 
which clusters all about, 

Er the President will get you — 
if you don't watch out! 
P.S. The Presidents permission 
was required every time a girl 
wanted to leave campus! Home 
even! ! !

Approaching A Sticky Subject 

by Susie Chancey 

Something must be done. 

It's a serious matter, and some- 
thing must be done. A very 
sticky matter too — the mud that 
surrounds the new dorms, the 
cafeteria, a debatable number of 
cars and bicycles, and every- 
body's ankles. 

It's amusing, true, to watch 
someone get a meal — if you're 
not participating. The Marine ob- 
stacle course would blush with 
shame at its own inadequacy. 

Anyone familiar with; eating 
is accustomed to the getting-to- 
the-dining hall ritual. First you 
board-walk for yards and yards, 
sliding and slipping i managing 
to stay vertical if you're agile. 
Then you hop onto the narrow 
ledge surrounding the circular 

Those experienced in tight-rope 
walking make it to the plank. The 
plank, throughout the rainy sea- 

son, varies in length, width and 
distance from the ledge. Recently 
it has been placed quite far away, 
making it necessary to be a phy- 
sical - fitness - broad - jump - rec- 
ord - breaker in order to escape 
to the other side. Once on the 
plank, (o glorious triumph!) you 
must maintain your cool (aqd 
your balance) while the plank 
dips and slides and undergoes 
outherwise fantastic gyrations. 

On the solid sidewalk, you can 
relax. There is nothing to do but 
clean up, stand in line, and bolt 
your food. Which, occasionally, 
is an accomplishment in itself. 

But when feeding is finished, 
you have to face making it back. 
Which turns out to twice as inter- 
esting, since there are twice as 
many people with a lean and hun- 
gry look trying to make it the 
other way. 

You can see that something 

must be done. Suggestions have 
been made. One student thought 
that the trek to the dining hall 
should be classified as a P.E. 
class and credit given. It could 
be called Mud Pies 101 or Syn- 
copation 202. Another suggestion 
that the sea of mud be covered 
with Handi-Wrap so that the stu- 
dents would simply sink and not 
reek. Someone even divised a 
plan to build bonfires at discreet 
spots so as to cause evaporation 
and make the mud turn to dirt. 
Other suggestions have been 
made, such as simply moving the 
dorms and cafeteria to the other 
side of campus, employing pyra- 
mid-moving student help. If we 
had 2,000 able Egyptians and 
strong ropes, we could do it 

But all we have is land and lots 
of rain. And some spirit. So if 
something isn't done, maybe you 
can keep smiling, even if you 
get mud on your teeth.

Martin To Test Demons Tomorrow Night 

By Steve Gunn 

The Martin, Tenn., Volunteers 
will try to put an end to the 
Demon's string of three wins 
when these two teams clash here 
tomorrow night. 

Fresh from a 34-6 triumph of 
Pensacola Navy, Coach Jack 
Clayton's crew will face a team 
that has a deceiving 1-3 record 
so far this season 

Martin has lost to Arkansas 
State Teachers College (17-14), 
Delta State (7-3) and Middle 
Tennessee (10-3) in close defen- 
sive battles while winning last 
week by edging out Southeast 
Missouri 17-14. 

Delta State and Middle Tenne- 
ssee were both in the "Top 
Twenty" listing among small col- 
leges when they met the Volun- 

This week the Demons are 
ranked by the NAIA poll as be- 
ing number 11 nationally in small 
college competition. 

Last year the Volunteers 
downed Clayton's team 19-17 at 

Twenty-one lettermen are back 
this year from the same team 
that won by two points a year 


Among these lettermen is 
quarterback Allan Cox, who is

all-around signal callers that the 
Demons will have to face this 

Allan Cox, fullback, and Larry 

Shanks, halfback, are a pair of

from Tennessee. 

Standouts on defense are guard 
Joe Taffani and linebackers Roy

Football Ushers In Intramural Play 

A wide-open race for the 
touch football championship be- 
gan when the Northwestern Intra- 
mural League inaugrated its 1966- 
67 season Oct. 3. 

This year, the league consists 
of teams formed by the various 
dormitories, fraternities, and 
campus organizations. The games 
are played in the evenings, Mon- 
day through Thursday. 

From the results of the first 
week's action, it looks as if the 
competition will be well-balanc- 
ed with a close finish in the mak- 

Monday's touch football results 
showed PEK defeating the West 
Howlers 13-6, and the Has Been's 
dropping the Hanglies 20-18. 

The action on Tuesday saw Sig- 
ma Tau decisioning TKE 12-0. 

The Different Parts downed the 
Newman Club 25-13, and the Zy- 
gotes and Pas Bas Trout fought 
to a 0-0 deadlock. 

On Wednesday, Kappa Sig 
socked Pi Kappa 21-7, the Other 
9 wallopped the Jena Giants 32-7, 
and the Uncouths edged Prud-

quarter as they tried to get some- 
thing going. 

Not until Lewis brought in the 
second offensive unit did the 
Demons make a first down. 

This drive started after Al 
Dodd received a punt on his own 
49-yard line. Lewis handed to 
Russ Gielow for a five-yard gain 
up the middle, and then took 
matters upon his own shoulders 
as he found a hole on a role-out 
and danced down to the Goshawk 
three before he was chased out 
of bounds. 

Barry Fresh pushed his way to 
the one, and Lewis went over for 
the first score on a quarterback 
sneak. The extra point attempt 
was blocked. 

A punt return to the Demon 
48 by Larry Ziefer, and a 15-yard 
personal foul penalty that put 
the Goshawk team on their op- 
ponent's 29 gave life to a second 
quarter Pensacola drive. Running 
backs Greg Steele and Dave Hol- 
ley pounded out a path to the 
four where quarterback Jim Par- 
ker passed to his favorite rece- 
iver, Skip Orr, for a six-pointer. 

With the score knotted at 6-6 

at the beginning of the second 
half of play, Guidry took over the 
helm by passing 18 yards to Gas- 
pard, advancing the Demons to 
the Pensacola 35. 

Guidry hit Dick Reding at the 
23, but bogged down to a fourth 
down and 10 yards to go situation 
at this point. 

Gaspard Scores 

Coach Jack Clayton sent Lewis 
back on the playing field with 
orders to try for a touchdown in- 
stead of a field goal. Lewis, hav- 
ing only one chance to do so, hit 
Gaspard right at the goal line to 
put the Navy behind 13-6. 

Another Demon drive started 
when Al Dodd brought down a 
short punt on the Goshawk 47. 
Running plays by Fresh and 
Lewis put the pigskin on the 34-

PERHAPS THE BIGGEST SURPRISE of the season for the Demons is 
Steve Gaspard, who brought down two Malcolm Lewis toiu:hodwn 
passes in last week's contest with Pensacola Navy. 

auce & 

by Sports Staff 

We are proud to announce that we went three for six on 
last week's prediction route, which was a sharp improvement 
over the one for three score of the preceding week. 

This week we intend to do better, even though we are at 
a distinct disadvantage of just making predictions on the 
Gulf States Conference games. Predicting who will win in the 
Southeastern, Southwestern or Big 10 conferences is elemen- 
tary when compared to picking a winner in the GSC. 

AH right, so we didn't look so bright picking La. Tech over 
Arkansas State 17-0, or when we picked Southeastern 13-0 
over Trinity- -or for that matter when we picked McNeese 
over Arlington State 14-3. 

But once again we got the game that matters by choosing 
NORTHWESTERN over Pensacola Navy 38-21. The score 
came out to be 34 (only four points off) to 6. 

And we almost guessed correctly when we picked South- 
western to beat Lamar Tech 27-21. We also came out right 
again on the Northeast Louisiana College game by making a 
28-10 pro-Northeast guess. 

GSC Guesses 

NORTHWESTERN 31 -Martin 10 -This should be a close 
game for a half until Martin's defense wears down. This game 
should resemble the Pensacola game. The only exception is 
that Martin's defense should be better than Pensacola's was. 
The Demons had better not be looking ahead to the La. Tech 

Southwesestern 24 - La. Tech 14 - We've gone with Tech 
for the last two contests. After much humiliation, it's time for 
a change. Southwestern has a little two much talent for the 

Northeast 27 - McNeese 21 - An explosive offensive that 
gave the Demons a run for their money a couple of weeks ago 
should do the trick. 

Southeastern 17 - La. College 10 - The Wildcats will lose a- 
nother, for the "Lion" is still king of the jungle.

Southwestern, Northeast Triumph 
Arkansas State Defeats Bulldogs 

by Bob Ardoin 
Trinity 14 S.L.C. 7 

The Southeastern Lions failed 
in their bid for an initial victory 
by succumbing to Trinity Col- 
lege 14-7. 

Trinity mounted a 6-0 half- 
time lead by taking advantage 
of the toe of their field goal 
specialists Marvin Upshaw. Up- 
shaw kicked field goals from 26 
and 34 yards out. 

Southeastern, stymied by a 
strong Trinity defense, began to 
move the ball well in the second 
half. They finally scored when 
Charlie Whitney went over from 
the one. 

The loss left the lions with a 
0-3 record. 

Arlington State 20 McNeese 

Arlington State's Rebels blank- 
ed the McNeese Cowboys 20-0 in 
a Saturday night intersectional 
football game. 

The Rebels first score came 
with less than three minutes 
showing in the first quarter when 
quarterback Carol Williams skirt- 
ed around right end from 13 yards

Statistically speaking, Arling-

Cowboys 211. 

Northeast 41 La. College 

Both the Northeast student 
body and alumni went away from 
Saturday's game wearing big 
smiles, because their alma mater 
had just decimated La. College 

The tribe collected 403 yards 
on the ground and in the air. They 
also managed a surprising 23 
first downs. 

Halfback Alton Thomas proved 
to be the difference for the vic- 
tors. Thomas scored twice for the 
Indians on runs of seven and 11 

Arkansas State 26 La Tech 13 

La. Tech was handed its fourth 
consecutive loss by the Arkansas 
State Indians Saturday night. 

Tech took the opening kickoff 
and scored when Richie Golman 
gathered it in and raced 94 yards. 

Golman took the ensuing kick- 
off and rambled 85 yards for a 

In the second quarter, the In- 
dians drove 90 and 94 yards to 
build up a sizeable 26-7 halftime 

The final Tech score came with 
only 22 seconds left on the clock 
when Phil Robertson threw a 17 
yard pass to Larry Brewer. 
U.S.L. 14 Lamar Tech 6 

The University of Southwestern 
Louisiana upset favored Lamar 
Tech 14-6 Saturday Night. 

Lamar Tech led off the scoring 
when quarterback Phil Primm 
tossed eight yards to Steve Bailey. 

Steve Poirier accounted for the 
first Southwestern tally when he 
scored on a nine yard end run. 
Quarterback Bill Bayard flipped 
to Leonard Kleinpeter for the 
other U.S.L. score. 

The Bulldogs of Lafayette now 
own a 3-1 record. 

Nobody has a smoother line!

Rev. S.J. Ciatto, newly appoint- 
ed chaplain of the Newman Club 
at 129 Second St., has a definite 
progressive feeling about being 
a chaplain at a state college. 

"I see a definite trend in the 
church as a whole to station 
more and more ordained priests 
on state campuses. There are 
several reasons for this. One is 
because there is an increasing 
number of Catholic students in 
non-parochial colleges. And, too, 
we want to make available to all 
students and faculty the present 
church's point of view." 

And what is Father Ciatto's 
point of view about the present 
church's purpose at NSC? 

"To make some intellectual 
and cultural contribution to the 
college experience." 

Father Ciatto, originally from 
Washington, D.C., attended public 
schools there and graduated from 
the University of Notre Dame in 
philosophy. He then earned a 
degree in theology from the Holy 
Cross College in Washington, and 
was ordained there in 1961. He 
rounded out his already extensive 
education with another year of 
study at Notre Dame and three 
years of parish work in Austin, 
Texas. One year was spent in New 
Orleans before taking over the 
Newman Club here at NSC. 

Father Ciatto announced a par- 
tial schedule of weekly Newman 
Club activities as follows: Mass — 
9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday; 5

Grudge Match Highlights State Fair 

Demons To Place 
Perfect 4-0 Mark 
On Firing Line 

by Steve Gunn 

It will be a case of a perfect 
record versus a perfectly imper- 
fect record when the Demons 
tangle with the Louisiana Tech 
Bulldogs tomorrow night at 7:30 
in State Fair Stadium at Shreve- 

Coach Jack Clayton's Demons 
will match their unblemished 4-0 
mark against the Bulldog's lack- 
luster 0-5 record. 

However, records are simply 
arithmetic when these two teams 
clash, as was the case last season 
when the Demons possessed an 
identical 4-0 label while the Bull- 
dogs were only two games shy 
in the lost column of having 
the same record. 

Tech won 42-14, and Clayton's 
bunch didn't win but one game 
for the rest of the year. 

Not only will this contest be a 
grudge game, but its outcome will 
be vital in determining the fate 
of both teams' Gulf States Con- 
ference (GSC) hopes. 

If Tech loses, they will be 
mathematically eliminated from 
even a share of the title since 
they have already dropped two 
circuit games. 

A win is also a must for the De- 
mons since McNeese and South- 
western are breathing down their 
throats for the conference first 


Leading the Tech offense will 
be Phil Robertson at quarterback. 
This 170-pound sophomore should 
put the ball in the air quite a bit 
against the Demons. Robertson 
has had 13 throws intercepted, 
but this can be expected when a 
team passes the pigskin for an av- 
erage of more than 30 times a 

Tech's ground war will be wa- 
ged by 195-pound halfback Robert 
Brunet and 185-pound senior full- 
back Tom Linder. 

Flankerback Jim Jones and 
ends Mike Greer and Ken Liberto 
will be chasing after passes dur- 
ing the game. 

Thought by many to be the 
best tackle in the GSC is 245- 
pound Bulldog tackle Wayne Ma- 

A pair of 220 pounders occupy 
the linebacker position. This ex- 
ceptionally big but fast duo is 
composed of two sturdy lads na- 
med) Bob McKinnon and Joe 
Peace. Getting by these two de- 
fenders will be a tough task for 
the Demon backs. 

(See Grudge Match, page 4) 

A COURT OF ROYAL PURPLE. . . State Fair Queen Pamela Jean 
Rushing of Natchitoches (left) will reign over week-end activities 
for the Northwestern- Tech football contest Saturday evening in 
Shreveport. Members of her court are (left to right) Cheryl Terry of 
Shreveport, Sarah Grunwald of Shreveport, Donna Jean Watts of 

Baton Rouge, Sue Peterson of Norfolk, Va., Shirley Kay Dalme of 
Natchitoches, Toni Walker of Shreveport, Martha (Pud'n) Palmer of 
Leesville, and Elizabeth Chapman of Bunkie. The girls were elected 
by vote of the Northwestern student body. 

USL, McNeese Knock Down GSC Opponents 

by Bob Ardoin 

Southwestern and McNeese 
kept pace with the Demons by 
downing their Gulf States Con- 
ference foes Saturday night, and 
La. Tech lost its fifth game in a 
row before facing the undefeated 
and untied Demon team in the 
number one grudge game in the 
league tomorrow night. 

USL 21 La. Tech 12 

Two second quarter scores and 
a third period tally enabled the 
Southwestern (USL) Bulldogs to 
secure a 21-12 victory over La. 
Tech Saturday. 

The Bulldogs put their first 
points on the scoreboard early in 
the second quarter when quarter- 
back Bill Bayard terminated a 
65-yard march by going over from 
the two. 

Other Bulldog touchdowns 
came on a 33-yard pass from Bay- 

ard to Leonard Kleinpeter, and a 
two-yard run by Gerald Landry. 

Tech launched a potent attack 
in the final period, but the Bull- 
dog point deficit was too much 
to overcome. The erratic Bulldogs 
scored twice in the dying minutes 
of the game. 

The loss gave the crew from 
Ruston an unimpressive 0-5 rec- 
ord going into Saturday's State 
Fair game against the Demons. 
Southeastern 49 La. College 

Southeastern Louisiana College 
won its first game of the season 
in a big way by trouncing La. Col- 
lege 49-0 in a contest played in 
Hammond Saturday night. 

The Lions scored in every quar- 
ter and rolled up a 21-0 score by 
the half. 

Tommy Arbour began the scor- 
ing barage when he scooted for 
41 yards in the first period. Other 

first half scores came when full- 
back Gary Orgeron plunged over 
from one yard out. The Lions an- 
nexed another talley when John 
O'Neal raced 66 yards with a La. 
College punt. 

In the second half, the Lion 
reserves proved as much of a 
threat as the first unit. Under the 
guidance of second unit quarter- 
back Bobby Cotten, the Lions 
managed four second half scores. 

The loss was a disappointing 
one for La. College which re- 
ceived its fifth straight loss with- 
out a victory. 

McNeese 18 Northeast 17 

Although they were held score- 
less for three quarters, the Mc- 
Neese Cowboys scored an unbe- 
lieveable 18 points in the fourth 
frame which propelled them to a 
GSC victory over Northeast. 

Northeast opened the scoring 
on a spectacular 74-yard run by 
Dalton LeBlanc. Clark Blake kick- 
ed a second quarter field goal 
which gave the Indians a 10-0 
halftime lead. 

The Tribe's last tally came on a 
one-yard plunge by Bobby Scafi- 

The Cowboys began to domi- 
nate the fourth quarter when 
William Keigley capped a 73-yard 
drive with a four-yard run. 

After recovering a fumble, 
McNeese scored again. On the 
next play, David Bourgeois 
tallied with a 31-yard scor- 
ing pass. David Pouche adminis- 
tered the winning margin when 
he booted a 23-yard field goal 
with four minutes remaining in 
the game. 

ON THE HEELS OF GALA CONFUSION. . . in walk the Kirbys, aristocrats of the Wall 
Street set, and the lady with the brush in her teeth (Pat Delano, right) and her philo- 
sophical old pa (Sam Shelton, seated) find themselves stuck with the Herculean task 

of setting things straight again. It happened in "You Can't Take It With You," the 
classic Hart-Kaufman comedy which closed Thursday night in the Little Theatre. (See 
review, page 3.)

Newman, Fonda In Local Flicks 

TORN CURTAIN, directed by 

Alfred Hitchcock 
(Paul Newman, Julie Andrews) 
Now showing at the Don 

What's that? Paul Newman- 
forceful, hero-type nuclear phys- 
icist — defecting to East Berlin? 
Julie Andrews, his troubled fi- 
ancee, is aghast. 

Really, Miss Andrews! No 
cause for alarm. Newman's just 
pretending that he's a bad guy 
in order to secure information 
he needs to perfect a nuclear 
defense system. 

When a member of the securi- 
ty police (Wolfgang Kieling) dis- 
covers this little secret, Newman 
has no alternative i but to do 
away with the man. 

"Gag!" (Paul trys to strangle 

"Rip, splurt!" (A stab, some 

"Klonk, pzzz!" (Victim's head is 
pushed in oven; gas is turned on.) 

Admittedly not a scene for the 
squeamish; but Life magazine 
thinks that it's one of the show's 
best moments. "The blend of 
terror and comedy in a weird vi- 
sion of blackness is uniquely 
Hithcock's own and is, indeed, 
what we mean when we speak of 
'the Hitchcock touch.' " 

Newsweek, however, took a 
dimmer view of this scene. "It is 
not that Gromek (Kieling) resists 
so remarkably as he is knifed, 
clonked and asphyxiated but only 
that his assailants make such an 
awful botch of their assault." 

Time magazine, after citing 
several of the film's typically 
"Hitchcock touches," concludes 
that "Curtain falls, more redolent 
of mothballs than mystery."

They creak into town in a Con- 
estoga wagon, and one thing is 
clear from the first. The family 
has not a smidgen of pizzaz! Ma 
(Joanne Woodward) wears a 
tacky little bonnet and a long- 
suffering, salt-of-the-earth visage. 

Pa (Henry Fonda) grins a lot 
and makes it easy to see why 
Ma's so long suffering. Their son 
(Gerald Michenaud) has the list- 
less mien of a brooding octage- 

It seems that our gleesome 
threesome has trotted from the 
east over mountain hill and plain 
to Texas. Their motive? Why, 
what else but to start anew in 

Alas, they happen to hit town 
right when the card game of the 
year is in full swing; and Daddy, 
drat the luck, is a compulsive 

He begs Ma's permission to 
watch the game; and, in no time 
at all, has "watched" away most 
of their savings. 

"When he finally gets a decent 
hand," Life magazine snickers, 

" yargh he is struck 

by a heart attack." 

Obviously it is now up to 
Mama, sterling woman that she 
is, to recover the family nestegg. 

"Just when the audience has 
had its fill of straight faces and 
straight flushes," says Newsweek, 
"the story takes a turn in line 
with the tradition of O Henry." 

"The surprise is genuine, rais- 
ing "A Big Hand for the Little 
Lady" far above the average 
formula western." 

Maltese, Gilbert, Torgrimson Group 
Performs Statewide At Various Events 

The Music Department has 
formed a new Faculty Trio this 
fall and the group already 
promises to become one of the 
Department's most active musical 
organizations. The Trio consists 
of Mr. John Maltese, violin, Mrs. 
Florence Gilbert, cello, and Dr. 
Paul Torgrimson, piano. 

To date the Trio has appeared 
on three occasions. First was a 
debut performance at the annual 
President's Reception in Prather 
Coliseum Sunday afternoon, Oct. 
2. Then Tuesday, Oct. 4, the group 

played at a Rotary luncheon meet- 
ing in Natchitoches and Thursday, 
Oct. 13, it was featured on the 
Ethma Odum Show over KALB- 
TV, Channel 5, in Alexandria. 
Wednesday, Oct. 19, a perform- 
ance will be given at a meeting 
of the Greater Shreveport Music 
Teachers Association and Friday, 
Oct. 28, the Trio will perform at 
the annual convention of the 
Louisiana Music Teachers As- 
sociation on the University of 
Southwestern Louisiana campus 
in Lafayette. 

Tenor Sings Concert Tuesday 

Young American tenor Nicho- 
las di Virgilio will appear in re-* 
cital Tuesday in the Fine Arts 
Auditorium. The concert will be- 
gin at 8 p.m. and is sponsored by 
the Northwestern - Natchitoches 
Concert Association. 

A native of Buffalo, New York, 
di Virgilio is a graduate of the*

On Campus 

(By the author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys!", 
"Dobie Gillis," etc.) 



Way back in 1953 I started writing- this column about 
campus life. Today, a full 13 years later, I am still writing 
this column, for my interest in undergraduates is as keen 
and lively as ever. This is called "arrested development;' 

But where else can a writer find a subject as fascinating 
as the American campus ? Where else are minds so nettled, 
bodies so roiled, psyches so unglued? 

Right now, for example, though the new school year has 
just begun, you've already encountered the following dis- 
asters : 

1. You hate your teachers. 

2. You hate your courses. 

3. You hate your room-mates. 

4. You have no time to study. 

5. You have no place to study. 

Friends, let us, without despair, examine your problems 
one by one. 

1. You hate your teachers. For shame, friends! Try 
looking at things their way. Take your English teacher, 
for instance. Here's a man who is one of the world's 
authorities on Robert Browning, yet he wears $30 tweeds 
and a pre-war necktie while his brother Sam, a high school 
dropout, earns 70 thou a year in aluminum siding. Is it so 
hard to understand why he writes "F" on top of your 
themes and "Eeeyich!" in the margin? Instead of hating 
him, should you not admire his dedication to scholarship, 
his disdain for the blandishments of commerce? Of course 
you should. You may flunk, but Pippa passes. 

2. You hate your courses. You say, for example, that 
you don't see the use of studying Macbeth when you are 
majoring in veterinary medicine. You're wrong, friends. 
Believe me, some day when you are running a busy kennel, 
you'll be mighty glad you learned "Out, damned Spot!" 

3. You hate your room-mates. This is, unquestionably, 
a big problem— in fact, the second biggest problem on 
American campuses. (The first biggest, of course, is on 
which side of your mortar board do you dangle the tassel 
at Commencement?) But there is an answer to the room- 
mate problem : keep changing room-mates. The optimum 
interval, I have found, is every four hours. 

4. You have no time to study. Friends, I'm glad to re- 
port there is a simple way to find extra time in your busy 
schedule. All you have to do is buy some Personna Super 
Stainless Steel Blades. Then you won't be wasting pre- 
cious hours hacking away with inferior blades, mangling 
your face again and again in a tedious, feckless effort to 
winnow your whiskers. Personna shaves you quickly and 
slickly, easily and breezily, hacklessly, scrapelessly, tug- 
lessly, nicklessly, scratchlessly, matchlessly. Furthermore, 
Personna Blades last and last. Moreover, they are avail- 
able both in double-edge and Injector style. And, as if this 
weren't enough, Personna is now offering you a chance to 
grab a fistful of $100 bills. The Personna Super Stainless 
Steel Sweepstakes is off and running ! You can win $10,000 
and even more. Get over to your Personna dealer for de- 
tails and an entry blank. Don't just stand there! 

5. You have no place to study. This is a thorny one, I'll 
admit, what with the library so jammed and the dorms so 
noisy. But with a little ingenuity, you can still find a quiet, 
deserted spot— like the ticket office of the lacrosse team. 
Or a testimonial dinner for the dean. Or the nearest re- 
cruiting station. 

You see, friends? When you've got a problem, don't lie 
down and quit. Attack! Remember: America did not be- 
come the world's greatest producer of milk solids and 
sorghum by running away from a fight!

Effective Stage Set loughs Galore 

Cast Shines Bright in Hart-Kaufman Classic 

By Danny Gayer 

"You Can't Take It With You" 
stole the opening role in the, 
college theatre season Tuesday 
night in a flash and flare of 
bright-light success and rollicking 
comedy in the true Hart- Kauf- 
man style. 

Dr. Edna West assembled and 
blended a fine cast into an excel- 
lent performance of the zany 
comedy. From the opening cur- 
tain to the calls, the actors paced 
and timed themselves with a de- 
gree of grace that is rare on any 
college theatre stage. There was 
vitality in this fresh and vibrant 
presentation that rode the power 
of the script and the cast as the 
evening's participants explored 
together the surprises of the mad- 
cap Sycamore family. 

On a set that has to be cluttered 
from one end to the other with 
every brand of junk imaginable, 
Frank Magers found space enough 
for all the actors and one of the 

wildest sets ever to come from 
the technical director (whose 
two-story set for last years fina- 
le, "All The Way Home", rests in 
the memory of most local play- 
goers as a masterpiece of ingenui- 
ty, and technical skill). 

Sam Shelton, in the role of 
Grandpa, lends the perfect atti- 
tude of nonchalance and individu- 
alism to his position as head of 
the clan. His piercing advice to 
the father of the groom-to-be is 
one of the finest spots in the 
show. No amount of hamming 
could enhance Shelton's perform- 
ance which is underplayed to the 
hilt. His rendition of the title 
lines sinks deeply in the quiet 
theatre atmosphere, pointed 

Gordon Parker as Tony and 
Barbara Gresham as Alice pro- 
vide the romance, and act as the 
means of the main tension of the 
story which comes in the family- 
class conflict that Alice fears, 

by Sports Staff 

Who was it said, "You can fool all the people some of 
the time, some of the people most of the time and the Current 
Sauce sports staff all of the time?" 

After going three for four GSC predictions last week, 
we have been contacted by wise men from the East, sooth- 
sayers, professional gamblers, extra-sensory preceptionists, 
unbelieving students, and startled professors, who all wanted 
to know one thing: "Who will win at Shreveport?" 

Our answer was boubted by one of the wise men from 
the east who furiously cried, "Listen, I've come a long way, 
and I want a better answer than that." 

That statement gave his identity away for we immedi- 
ately recognized him as a La. Tech spy who wanted to know 
how many points the Demons were going to score. There was 
nothing to do but call upon the society editor to throw the 
big brute out. 

With that out of the way, another dubious member of 
the crowd, probably a jealous soothsayer, said, "I see you 
missed McNeese and Northeast. The score was 18-17 in favor 
of McNeese instead of Northeast 27 - McNeese 21 like you 

Of course we reminded him that McNeese wiped out a 
17-0 deficit by scoring all of their points in the 4th quarter, 
and that it should have gone the other way. 

We also told him to examine last week's prediction 
column. For instance, we picked the Demons to beat Martin 

31-10. The final score? 26-7 in favor of the Demons. 

We quoted to him one of our prediction notes from last 
week's column. It read: "This should be a close game for a 
half until Martin's defense wears down." 

Remembering that the score was Martin 7-6 at halftime, 
the soothsayer blushed and wandered out the door. 

We guessed correctly by choosing Southwestern over 
Tech by a 24-14 score. The score? 21-12. Not bad! 

Southeastern tried to embarass us by beating La. College 
49-0. We only picked the Lions by only 17-10 score. 

GSC Guesses 

NORTHWESTERN 27 -La. Tech 10 -Demons are 4-0; 
Bullbogs are 0-5. Tech has played tougher teams such as 
Alabama, Southern Mississippi and Arkansas State but they're 
not in the class with the Demons. If the Demons don't win 
this one, they should drop Tech from the schedule! 

Southeastern 34 - Northeast 28 - This should be a high 
scoring affair, and the team that scores last should win. 

Lamar Tech 21 - McNeese - 12 - Lamar Tech's too good 
for the cowboys. 

Southwestern 28 - Samford 7 - USL is at full steam now.

Tony fails to see, and Grandpa 

Miss Gresham puts all the con- 
cern of a young lady disenchan- 
ted with her family in her melo- 
dramatic role. 

Parker bounces around the 
stage in command of the situation 
as the self-righteous young man 
riding ideal clouds and dreams, 
only to be grounded by the wis- 
dom of age. His treatment of the 
love scene a la interruptions is 
particularly delicate. 

Did You See . . . 

The actress was drunk to the 
point of seeing snakes; Mr. DePin- 
na was posing in Roman garb 
with a discus; Grandpa was throw- 
ing darts; mother was writ- 
ing plays on a mistakenly deliver- 
ed typewriter; father was making 
fireworks; Boris and Essie were 
working on the ballet; the inter- 
nal revenue man was at the door; 
the duchess was in the kitchen 
cooking; poor little Alice was wor- 
ring about the whole mess of af- 
fairs and in walk the Kirbys to 
the delight of the audience. 

In this Hart-Kaufman produc- 
tion, who else could the Kirbys be 
but the father and mother of 
Alice's fiance? 

Well, they're from the upper 
crust of our society and you can 
imagine their reaction when they 
spot Gay Wellington, drunk and 
dead to the world on the Syca- 
more couch. The intoxicated ac- 
tress is played by Mrs. Alice Anne 
Conner, who stops the show with 
her brilliant portrayal of the one 
"gone astray". The laughs are 
long and loud when Mrs. Conner 
staggers with her gin bottle in 
the direction of grandpa's snake 

Pat Delano dons both writing 
and painting garb for her role as 
Penny Sycamore, Alice's mother. 
Her complete oblivion to "what's 
right" and her anxieties for her 
daughter's future come through 
in a motherly fashion. 

Jim O'Quinn as Mr. Sycamore, 
the fireworks man, is perfect as 
the patient father whose quiet 
suggestion causes Alice an extra 
thought or two when she thinks 
of leaving home. 

Leah Luckett plays Essie, who'll 
never make a decent step, even 
after eight years of ballet lessons. 
Miss Luckett's interpretation of 
the lines about whether she 
should have a baby or not are 
finely delivered. Her husband, Ed, 
played by Tommy Davis, seems 
not a bit ready to have a baby 
until grandpa gives his approval. 
Mambourg's protrait 

Then there's Jim Mambourg. 
He plays the role of Mr. DePinna, 
a guest who dropped by eight 
years ago, when he was an ice 
man, and stayed. He's changed 
occupations now. He helps Mr. 
Sycamore with the fireworks 
manufarturing. Mambourg uses 
his stage experience effectively in 
his delivery of this character. 
DePinna comes through both sub- 
tly, simply, and slapstickly. A 
blend that adds to comedy. 

Pat Swafford strolls in as the 
grand duchess, exiled of course. 
She works as a waitress at a local 
restuarant but you should hear 
Nick Pollacia (Boris Kolenkov) 
rant about her position in the

EVERYBODY LOOKS fooled in this picture as the Demon's leading rusher, halfback Neil Prather, No. 44, 
attempts to find a path through a gathering of Martin Volunteers. The defenders seem to be confused 
as to whether Prather or halfback Gary PiUman, No. 45, is carrying the ball. 

Demons Grind Out 26-7 Victory 
Over Martin; Perfect Record Intact 

A capacity Mom and Dads' Da y 
crowd of over 7,000 were shocked 
from their seats Saturday as the 
Volunteers from Martin Branch 
gave the Demons a tough first 
half before eventually falling be- 
hind and losing 26-7. 

Yells came up from the stands 
when a pass interference penalty 
gave Clayton's Purple team the 
ball on the Tennessee 19. 

Halfback Neil Prather, the 
team's leading rusher, ran over 
two defenders before he was 
knocked off his feet on the nine. 
Prather carried the pigskin again 
to the six, then Prather's fellow 
halfback, Gary Pi ttman, darted 

Grudge Match- 

( Continued from page 1) 
Other Bulldogs who will figure 
prominently in tomorrow night's 
game are end Speedy Campbell, 
halfback Richie Golman and punt 
return specialist Jim Stringer. 

Attempting to improve on a 33- 
13-4 Bulldog series lead will be 
such Demon standouts as quarter- 
backs Donald Guidry, a 170-pound 
sophomore, and Malcolm Lewis, a 
195-pound junior. Both have 
taken turns spurring the Demon' 
offense this season. 

Leading the running atack will 
be halfbacks Neil Prather, the 
team's leading rusher, and Gary 
Pittman. Randy Tate and break- 
away runner Russ Gielow will 
take turns at the fullback posi- 

Louis Richard, Dick Reding and 
Steve Gaspard should be the top 
targets for Lewis aiid Guidry 

Leading tjhe Demon defense 
will be NAIA Ail-American Al 
Dodd, a lightning quick safety 
who has intercepted five passes 
in four games. 

Dodd is also one of the best 
punt return men in the league. 

Defensive linemen Mace Mor- 
ris, a 190- pound freshmen end 
and Gerald Malley, a 195-pound 
middle guard, will be serving as 
stumbling blocks for the Tech 
running game. 

Senior Carroll Long, a 185- 
pound linebacker, who played an 
exceptional game against the Mar- 
tin Tennessee Volunteers, will be 
watching for both running and 
aerial attacks as soon as the horn 

into the end zone to put the 
Demons ahead 6-0. Lewis's PAT 
kick failed. 

Later in the quarter fullback 
Russ Gielow broke loose at the 
Demon 29 and rambled past the 
40-yard mark where he was hit 
hard and separated from the ball. 

Martin recovered and on the 
first play scatback Larry Shanks 
ran right through the heart of the 
Demon secondary on a 37-yard 
draw play that knotted the score 

The point after touchdown put 
the visitors in front 7-6 as the 
first quarter ended. 

Another Volunteer threat came 
early in the second quarter when 
a Shelley Dickie punt was block- 
ed on the Demon 16. However < a 
15-yard illegal use of the hands 
penalty and Al Dodd's fifth pass 
interception of the year prevent- 
ed another Tennessee score. 

A 21-yard run by Gielow and a 
five-yard scoot by Lewis set up a 
field goal attempt by Lynn Foret, 
but the 46-yard try failed as the 
ball sailed to the left. 

The third quarter saw a Demon 
drive develop at their own 32. 
Prather, Randy Tate, Richard and 
Guidry were all in on passing and 
running plays that carried the 
leather to their opponent's 18. 

Guidry hit freshman end Steve 
Gaspard at the three where he 
almost stumbled in for the score. 
Tate did the honors from there, 
and the Demons led 12-7. An at- 
tempt for two points failed as the 
Volunteer line toughened. 

Defensive end Mace Morris 
broke through the opposing line 
and snatched a volunteer pitch- 
out that was intended for half- 
back Shanks and ran 80 yards for 
the score. Dodd, playing his best 
game of the season, made three 
key blocks on the Morris touch- 
down run. Lewis kicked, and the 
score was 19-7. 

All-American Dodd gave the 
crowd its biggest thrill of the 
night as the electrified thousands 
jumped to their feet when the 
fleet safety got by the first wave 
of tacklers, did a ballet dance 
around two more and raced to 
pay dirt on a 95-yard punt return. 

Behind 26-7, the volunteers 
managed to get to the Demon 
five on two occasions late in the 
game, but Clayton's second de- 
fensive unit held their ground 
until the horn sounded.

1 966 Homecoming Queen 

Walker To Reign 
As Queen For '66 
Homecoming Fete 

Miss Toni Walker, a sophomore 
sociology major from Shreveport, 
has been selected by the Demon 
football team to reign over col- 
lege homecoming activities Nov. 
12 as 1966 Homecoming Queen. 

Miss Walker, a 1965 graduate 
of Fair Park High School, has 
been Demon Band majorette, a 
participant in the Lady of the 
Bracelet pageant, a member of 
the State Fair Court for two 
years, and was elected to the 1965 
Homecoming Court. She is a 
sophomore counselor. 

Miss Walker and her court will 
be presented in pregame cere- 
monies at the NSC-Southwestern 
football game. 

Presenting The Righteous Sound 

A little over three years ago 
two young men named Bill Med- 
ley and Bobby Hatfield were sing- 
ing with their own independent 
groups in coffeehouses and clubs 
in the California area. Then they 
met and decided to merge their 
talents, and today Bill and Bobby 
are The Righteous Brothers, one 
of the most successful duos in 
the entertainment world. 

The Righteous Brothers will 
appear in concert in Prather Coli- 
seum Wednesday at 8 p.m., spon- 
sored by the Northwestern stu- 
dent Government Association. The 
show will also feature comedy 
singers Burt Holiday and Ronnie 
Gaylord, along with rock and roll 
singers Nino Tempo and April 
Stevens, a popular brother and 
sister team. 

The Righteous Brothers, who 
have been singing together since 
1962, have made a sudden impact 
on the recording and concert 
field that is unmatched by Ameri- 
can entertainers. At one point, 
three of their albums were all in 
the top twenty on the album 
charts, a feat which cannot be 
claimed by any other contempor- 
ary performer. 

Bill and Bobby's personal ap- 
pearance tours, stretching across 
the United States, have been so 
successful that the Righteous 
Brothers have gained their own 
chapter in a fourth-coming soci- 
ology book. "Electric" and "fren- 
zied" have been used by critics 
to describe the atmosphere sur- 
rounding a performance by the 
Righteous Brothers. 

One of the main reasons given 
for their immense popularity 
stems from their musical sound, 
which they call, aptly enough, 
"the Righteous Sound." It is com- 
posed of spiritual, rock and roll, 
blues, country and western, gos- 
pel, and standards, a distinct and 
unique combination that over 
10,000,000 records in three short 

"Basically," they say, "we have 
no gimmicks. Our approach to 
music has one specific quality 
the heart of the song. The secret 
is to create a mood rather than 
articulate words. We don't do an 
easy show, and when we perform 
we are up there to satisfy our- 
selves as well as the audience. We 
have set our own limits on per- 
formance and that limit is high."

sociation voted Monday to charter 
three busses for NSC students 
interested in attending the McNe- 
ese-NSC football game Nov. 5. 

Milton Rhea, president of the 
SGA, said that any students inter- 
ested in going to the conference 
game on one of the busses should 
deposit three dollars at Dean 
Dudley Fulton's office in the ad- 
ministration building. 

The three busses will seat a 
total of 123 people, and seats will 
be reserved on a first-come, first- 
served basis. Tht SGA is paying a 

portion of the cost for chartering 
the busses, Rhea said. 

"The tickets would actually 
cost over five dollars per person," 
said Rhea, "so the SGA has ap- 
propriated funds to make up the 


In other business, the campus 
government voted to turn the 
management of the Thursday 
Night school dances over to the 
Black Nights so that they may 
earn money to go to the Cherry 
Blossom festival next Spring. 

The Knights need approximate- 
ly$2500 in order to attend the 
festival and have several other 
money-raising projects lined up in 
the next few months. 


Dean Dudley Fulton was asked 
if Northwestern students would 
receive a holiday for their recent 
victory over Louisiana Tech at 
the State Fair Classic. To this, 
Dean Fulton answered, "Now why 
should we put Tech on such a 
pedestal as to declare a holiday 
just because we beat them? Do 

they declare a holiday when they 
beat us? It has to be understood 
that the Tech game is merely 
another football game and no 
special ceremonies should be held 
just because we beat them." 

Fulton also said that if NSC 
wins the Gulf States Conference 
this year, "then we might see 
about having a holiday." 

The dean complimented the stu- 
dent body for the sane manner in 
which they approached the Fair 
game this year. He said it was an 
improvement over the attitude in 
past years. 

Triply-Trained Teachers-The O-P People 

OBSERVATION— PARTICIPATION PEOPLE IN ACTION— Students Charles Little, Richard Gallion, Mer-

"Hey, this is fun! I can't wait 
to try student teaching now." 
That's the concensus of opinion 
voiced by performers from the 
new observation-participation pro- 
gram in education. 

This plan, a type of apprentice- 
ship to student teaching_ is heart- 
ily referred to by Dr.' Leonard 
F. Fowler, professor of education 
and director of the laboratory 
school, as "the best operation 
offered by this department in the 
past twelve — almost thirteen — 

The program itself is a re- 
quired part of the methods 
courses, Education 309 (teaching 
social studies and science), Edu- 
cation 310 (teaching mathema- 
tics), and Education 400 (teaching 
language arts). 

Students are asked to sched- 
ule all three teaching courses 
in the same semester and carry 
through with lab work at the 
same time. This is designed to 
promote clarification of teaching 
methods taught in class by actual 
observation partcipation, anjd — 
to a certain extent — application 
in a laboratory classroom. 

Each student is assignee^ a> 
supervising teacher in the NSC 
lab school for his O-P program. 
Then all students assigned to this 
teacher meet with him as a group 
one hour each week to discuss 
class and lesson plans, exercises 

and any problems that ma v arise. 

Each student keeps a notebook 
log, or diary on the observation^ 
partcipation, and group meetings 
with supervising teachers. 

Methods course instructors 
check the notebooks periodically 
during the semester. 

Supervising teachers write an 
evaluation of each student assign- 
ed to him for O-P and submit a 
copy to the instructors of Educa- 
tional teaching courses. 

This apprentice plan was tried 
on an experimental basis last 
.year. Its success was so great 
that O-P has now been incorpo- 
rated into the education curric- 

According to Dr. Lisso Sim- 
mons, head of the department 
of education and director of tea- 
cher education, "The program is 
now in use for procedure in the 
elementary lab school and prep- 
aration is under way for pro- 
cedure in the high school." 

Guidance teachers wh/rv have 
student teachers this fall who 
participated in the O-P program 
last year have indicated that 
these pupils are better prepared 
for practice teaching. They come 
into the classroom with a com- 
prehensive understanding of what 
is going on, and spend less time 
asking questions. 

The new observation-participa- 
tion program has been highly 
praised by all who are involved.

NSC's Special Education Center- 
A Multi-Purpose Plan For Susie 


By Gail Dooley 

Little Susie Rogers doesn't run 
from the children on her block 
anymore. And she's no longer 
afraid to speak in class. 

Two years ago Susie had an 
emotional problem that kept her 
from being as happy as she could 
have been. But through the help 
of a Special Education Center, 
Susie now laughs and plays with 
the rest of the children. 

Northwestern has such a Spe- 
cial Center that serves the excep- 
tional children of DeSoto, Red 
River, Natchitoches, Sabine, 
Winn, Grant and LaSalle parish- 
es. Joint branches are also lo- 
cated in the parishes of Caddo 
and Rapides. 

The Special Education Center's 
only concern is not for the emo- 
tionally unstable child. It also 
serves those with speech, hearing, 
and visual problems — and tjie 
physically handfcapped. 

Dr. Michael Cousins, head of 
the on-campus Special Education 
Center, explains that "this pro- 
gram has a twofold purpose. It 
is an academic department and a 
clinical center. 

"As an academic department, 
course work is offered to certify 
teachers of the mentally retarded, 
physically handicapped, and emo- 
tionally disturbed. 

"As a clinic, the department 
has a contractual arrangement 
with the parishes it serves to 
evaluate children and to provide 
consultive services for parents 
and schools." 

A teacher — or someone else — 
who suspects a child is in need of 
special education services refers 
the child to an appointed person 
on the school board. Then the 
problem is referred to the Special 
Education Center. 

An evaluation of the child is 
then undertaken on campus or at 
an appointed place near the chi- 
ld's home. 

"This evaluation is a process of 
teamwork," according to Dr. Cou- 
sins. Those involved in this eval- 
uation are a social worker, a psy- 
chologist, a special educator, a 
doctor, the teacher and a speech 
or hearing counselor if necessary. 

After the evaluation, it is de- 
termined if the child should be 
enrolled in special education clas- 
ses. Each student is classified as 

educable or trainable. Many child- 
ren cannot learn, but can be train- 
ed to follow certain steps. 

Those children who are classi- 
fied as educable are enrolled in 
classes. Subjects which the stu- 
dent will take include music, phy- 
sical education, chorus, and all 
standard subjects such as English 
and math. 

The subjects are geared to dif- 
ferent degrees for each child. The 
mentally retarded are on a low, 
non-competitive level because of 
the slow progress. 

The greater part of these ser- 
vices are paid for by the Louis- 
iana Exceptional Child Act. 
There is no charge for these ser- 
vices to the child. 

Northwestern offers a minor in 
Special Education to those stu- 
dents majoring in Education who 
complete elective courses in this 
department. Students majoring 
in psychology may obtain a mi- 
nor in special education. 

Two masters degrees are offer- 
ed in the graduate program, the 
M.Ed, with certification in one or 
more of the areas of exceptional- 
ity and the M.A. with emphasis 
on speech correction. 


Uncongenial Colleges 

Like A Clutch Of Druids 

A Stinging Re -Evaluation of College Teaching 

Despite general agreement that 
overemphasis on research has led 
to a neglect of undergraduate 
teaching, participants at the A- 
merican Council on Education 
conference in New Orleans Oct. 
12-14 achieved little consensus on 

specific measures to solve the 
problem — and called for further 
research into evaluating teacher 

Meeting to discuss "impedi- 
ments" to good college teaching, 
over 1400 college administrators 

examined various ways to im- 
prove instruction and agreed that 
students should play a role in e- 
valuating the quality of teaching. 
There was but one student sched- 
uled on the program, however, to 
discuss their suggestions. 

WHAT IS IT? This silent, whispered and sometimes giggled question pervaded part of the atmosphere 
at the recent exhibit by the London Grafica Arts in the Art Gallery. Artist whose works were on sale in- 
cluded Carzou, Chagall and many others from the more modern schools. 

The ACE, which includes al- 
most all colleges and universities 
in the country, also heard con- 
flicting views on the purposes of 
college teaching and numerous 
suggestions that educational goals 
be defined before teaching can be 
evaluated meaningfully. 

Commissioner of Education 
Harold Howe, for example, told 
ACE that "if teaching today suf- 
fers by comparison with research, 
it is because colleges and univer- 
sities have succumed to external 
influences and regulated teach- 
ing to an inferior position." 

Similarly, President John E. 
King of the University of Wyom- 
ing complained that "so many 
able young people emerging from 
these great graduate schools ob- 
viously have become indoctrinat- 
ed with the idea that undergrad- 
uate teaching isn't as important 
or as rewarding as graduate 
teaching or research." 

But it was a University of Tex- 
as Classics professor, William 
Arrowsmith, who astounded the 
group by proclaiming that "as 
presently constituted, the colleg- 
es and universities are as uncon- 
genial to teaching as the Mojave 
desert to a clutch of Druid prie- 

Arrowsmith also shocked the 
group by calling for complete sep- 
aration of teaching from re- 
search, because "the scholar has 
^disowned the student — that is 
the student who is not a potent- 
ial scholar — and the student has 
reasonably retaliated by abandon- 
ing the scholar." 

He challenged teachers to re- 
turn to their ancient Socratic 
role as "visible embodiments of 
the realized humanity of our as- 
pirations, intelligence, concerns, 
skills, and scholarship.... 

" The teacher is both sanction 
and goal of the education he 
gives. This is why it is completely 
reasonable that a student should 
expect a classicist to live class- 

Arrowsmith admitted that not 
every teacher can be a "hero" 
or a "great man" but claimed 
that educators "must at least 
have a comprehension of great- 
ness and a hunger for it. Only 
then can they speak to the stu- 
dent's human concern for the 
same greatness; at heart all want 
realization; if we cannot be heroes 
it is heroes nonetheless we want 
to be." 

The suggestions were, however, 

not taken up at the conference, 
and most discussion centered 
about the ways in which teacher 
aims can be achieved and the 
various methods for evaluating 
faculty effectiveness. 

Dr. Robert A. Nesbitt, professor 
of sociology at the University 
of California (Riverside), told 
the group that "the primacy of 
research. . .and the profession- 
alization of academic disciplines" 
are here to stay," despite the 
conflict of loyalties they create 
between teaching and research. 

The conflict universities can 
resolve, he noted, is that between 
"research and research — that 
is, between research that should 
be done outside the university 
and research that is congenial to 
the aims of the university." He 
prbposed that large scale re- 
search, in which students act as 
"technicians" and professors as 
"project administrators," be e- 
liminated; at universities. 

Other participants in the pro- 
gram had these recommendations 
for improving college teaching: 

— O. Meredith Wilson, presi- 
dent of the University of Minne- 
sota, said that colleges should 
find ways to honor excellence in 
teaching, for "if teaching is hon- 
ored on our campuses, it will be 
cultivated there, and will finally

Clothes, Crime, and Sophia 


Audrey Hepburn, Peter O'Toole 

(Starts Sunday, Oct. 30, at the 

Oh no! ! Audrey Hepburn, vet- 
eran ingenue and everyone's 
favorite clothes horse, a thief? 
Don't despair. We'll get to the 
bottom of this before you can say, 
"Frocks by Givenchy, jewels by 

Yes, Miss Hepburn has turned 
to a life of crime; but there are 
extenuating circumstances for her 
doing so. 

It appears that if she doesn't 
steal a phony Venus before it is 
examined, her papa's profession 
(that of art forger) will be dis- 
covered and the family reputation 
shot to you know where. 

Audrey persuades Peter O'Toole 
to help her out in the Venus ca- 
per. Isn't it a pity that he's really 
an art detective who has some- 
what less than honorable designs 
on "Our Fair Lady." 

Observes Newsweek magazine: 
"Miss Hepburn responds to 
O'Toole's advances with her usual 
selection of charms, looking girl- 
lishly amazed, standing slightly 
knock-kneed, walking with a tiny 
tiptoe teeter." 

"She goes through all the mo- 
tions of sophisticated comedy, but 
the gait is really that of a sleep- 
walker with insufficient energy 
to hold up her eyelids, let alone 
a museum." 

Time magazine feels that nei- 
ther Miss Hepburn, nor the show 
as a whole is anything to brag 

"Its old - fashioned fun looks 
overpracticed, becoming merely 
another workout for a troupe of

She enters with feline grace, 
trailing black chiffon. The hyp- 
notic eyes gaze disconcertingly, 
the sensuous lips purse into a 
fetching pout. (No doubt about 
it, Miss Loren knows how to come 
into a room.) 

Professor Gregory Peck, fran- 
tically nibbling rock candy, 
pauses from his task of translat- 
ing a hieroglyphic message. So- 
phia has him in such a state that 
one is sure he will soon be the 
victim of acute strangulation. 

Is she a villainess or heroine — 
on our side or theirs? In this tale 
of Middle Eastern intrigue and 
espionage, neither the audience 
nor Mr. Peck is quite sure. 

One thing, however, is certain. 
Miss Loren is by far the most 
successful vamp since Cleopatra. 
She slinks about in gold lame, 
throwing scintillating glances to 
her rich boy friend, Professor 
Peck, and numerous other lucky 

Newsweek magazine put it this 
way: "...there is really nothing 
nicer in the world than the sight 
of Miss Loren playing princess in 
the bright, Arabian night." 

Incidentally, Newsweek 
thought the rest of the show was 
pretty good too. "In Arabesque, 
the James Bond formula has been 
taken and enriched with stylish 
zest and bountiful wit."

Three Music Majors Win Scholarships 

The Natchitoches-Northwestern 
Symphony Society has recently 
awarded scholarships to three 
Northwestern State College music 

The society, formed last spring, 
has set aside funds which will be 
used to bring outstanding string 
players to the Northwestern cam- 

Receiving the first scholarships 
from the society are Johnette 
Johnston, a freshman from Shre- 
veport; Charles Kyncl, a fresh- 
man from Glen Ellyn, 111.; and 
Vincent Ognibene, a junior from 
New York, N.Y. 

Miss Johnston, a graduate of 
Fair Park High School in Shreve- 
port, was selected last summer to 
represent Louisiana at the annual 
Congress of Strings at Michigan 
State University. She is presently 
a student of John Maltese at No- 
rthwestern where she is a violin 
major. She is principal second vi- 
olin in the Natchitoches-North- 

western Symphony Orchestra. 

A graduate of Glenbard West 
High School in Glen Ellyn, 111., 
Kyncl has appeared as soloist 
with the Wheaton Youth Symph- 
ony and has performed major 
concertos by Saint-Saens, Bocch- 
erini, Lalo, Haydn, and Schubert. 
Kyncl has studied cello for 10 ye- 
ars and is now a student of Mrs. 
Florence Gilbert at NSC where 
he also plays in the symphony or- 

Ognibene, a native of New 
York who now resides in Hol- 
yoke, Mass., began study of the 
violin at the age of 12. He gave a 
debute violin recital at Carnegie 
Hall in New York in 1950. A stu- 
dent of the Manhatten School of 
Music, he played in the Houston 
Symphony, the Kansas City Phil- 
harmonic, the Springfield Sym- 
phony, and the Virginia Sympho- 
ny. For the past two years, Ogni- 
bene has been with the Shreve- 
port Symphony Society. 

Homecoming Display 
Awards Total $300 

Entry blanks for the Home- 
coming displays and exhibits are 
now available in the Dean of Wo- 
men's Office for those students 
who plan to participate in the 
decorations program for Satur- 
day, Nov. 12. 

Total cash prizes of $300 will 
be awarded for best decorations 
in various on-campus categories, 
according to Dean of Women Lu- 
cile M. Hendrick. 

"This annual scheduled Home- 
coming is a day of celebration 
for all of us here at Northwest- 
ern and is an excellent oppor- 
tunity for welcoming alumni and 
visitors to the campus," Dean 
Hendrick observed. "It is hoped 
that the students will be inter- 
ested and enthusiastic in achiev- 
ing some outstanding decorative 
designs for this occasion." 

With the elimination of the 
paradje, the emphasis for this 
year will be on decorations on 
the campus, Dean Hendrick point- 

Dean Southerland 
Addresses Group 
On Libraries 

Dr. T. Southerland, dean of the 
School of Education, recently 
spoke to the members, initiates, 
and new pledges of Alpha Sigma 
Chapter of Alpha Beta Alpha. 

Having served on the committee 
of one hundred in the field of 
instructional centers to study, 
evaluate, and recommend func- 
tions and policies, he told the 
students where Louisiana stood 
in the rating of school libraries. 

Dr. Southerland also pointed 
out the great need for librarians 
in every area; not only in schools, 
but in public, college, and special 
library fields. He encouraged stu- 
dents to get as much experience 
as possible in the newer media 
as well as in printed materials, 
since the concept is changing 
from the traditional library to the 
instructional center, which will 
house all materials. 

Following Dr. Southerlands 
comments, Alpha Beta Alpha held 
its initiation and pledging cere- 
monies, conducted by Polly Car- 
penter, president, Mary Honey- 
cutt, vice-president, Wayne Willis, 
treasurer, and Pat Anderson and 
Martha Hagewood. 

The three new initiates are: 
Bonnie Mathews, Sherry Creigh- 
ton, and Gwen Ellison. 

Sixteen new pledges are as 
follows: Mrs. F. E. Christensen, 
Maxine Trichel, Janie Temple, 
Victoria Caponi, Charles Trotti, 
Sue Naylor, Ann McDaniel, Gail 
Bretthauer, Judy Brown, Nancy 
Martin, Margaret L. Jobe, Ann 
Massey, Bonnie Bradford, Judy 
Wenner, and Linda Broughton. 

Canterbury Club 
Names Officers 

Guin Hodges has been selected 
to head the 1966-67 officer slate 
for the Canterbury Club, an or- 
ganization for Episcopalians. 

Joining Hodges as the organi- 
zation's officers are: Annette 
Wallace, vice president; Barbara 
Fowler, secretary; and Kathy Ger- 
lach, treasurer. 

Included in the Canterbury 
Club's plans for the fall is the 
showing of several feature films, 
among them, Alfred Hitchcock's 
The Birds. Guests speakers from 
the English department will be 
invited to discuss the symbolism 
in this film and in others. 

The organization meets every 
Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the 
Canterbury Club located on Lee 
Street. Supper is served following 
an Evening Prayer service. 

Father Robert Luckett, curate 
of Trinity Episcopal church, is 
the Canterbury Club chaplin.

rejected by Professor Arrow- 
smith: "If you want to restore a 
Druid priesthood, you cannot do 
it by offering prizes for Druid of 
the Year." 

—Charles Cogen, president of 
the American Federation of 
Teachers, called for unionization 
and collective bargaining to im- 
prove the status of teachers vis-a- 
vis researchers. "You must face 
it," he told the administrators, 
"collective bargaining is here." 

— Esther Rauschenbush, presi- 
dent of Sarah Lawrence College, 
claimed that independent study 
programs should be instituted to 
give students an "opportunity to 
discover questions to work on 
and to discover ways of working 
on them. . . ." 

— Other panelists suggested 
evaluation of teaching through 
classroom visits by faculty, 
through student ratings, and 
through technological feedback 

The one student on the pro- 
gram, James Johnson, former 
national affairs vice president of

encourage students to set up their 
own courses, as in free univers- 
ities, and to promote student e-

aimed at helping those students

assistance. It should also give the 
education student an opportunity 
to work with children while 
studying to get a degree.

Energetic work and spirited

ed the "hardware of science," Dr. 
Overman pounded home the fact 
that the potential good or evil of 
atomic power will be determined 
by the man who uses it. 

He further asserted that sci- 
ence makes no effort to define 
moral values. It does, however, 
attempt to use its discoveries for 
the betterment of mankind. 

Furthermore, science deals with 
the world of the five senses, Dr. 
Overman pointed out. Although 
each scientist recognizes the exis-

Gaspard, Guidry Star 
As Tech Loses Again 

THOUSANDS OF EYES are focused on the football as Tech receiver Jim Towns, No.77, leaps above 
a trio of white-uniformed Demon defenders in an attempt to pull the sailing pigskin from the sky. Coach 
Joe Aillet can be seen standing in the background alongside a host of Tech players anxiously waiting to 
see if the pass will be caught. 

Joe Aillet, La. Tech's football 
tutor, might not have been too 
happy after the Demons trounced 
his club 28-7 Saturday night in 
Shreveport, but he can take satis- 
faction in being right about one 

Before the game, Aillet had 
said that the Tech Bulldogs were 
up against one of the better small 
college teams in the country, if 
not the best. 

Rated third in the nation by the 
National Atheletic Intercollegiate 
Association (NAIA) poll, the 
Demons proved that they were 
the team to beat in the Gulf States 
Conference as they ran their re- 
cord to 5-0 by dominating the 
game from the first quarter to 
the last. 

During the first fourth of the 
game, all the action was centered 
on the Tech end of the field. 
Desperately trying to break out 
of the Demon bottleneck, Tech 
quarterback Phil Robertson saw 
Ronnie Whatley, a white-shirted 
Demon guard, intercept the foot- 
ball on the Tech 34. 

Quarterback Don Guidry jump- 
ed back in the pocket and hit 
tightend Dick Reding at the 25, 
and Reding roared to the 10. 

Fullback Randy Tate moved the 
Demons to the nine-yard line, 
then on the next play Tate fought 
his way to the seven. 

Guidry, seeing that the Tech 
line was too powerful at this 
point, dropped back and hit Louis 
Richard in the end zone on a 
buttonhook play that brought the 

Northwestern fans on the east 
side to their feet. 

Malcolm Lewis's kick was good, 
and the Demons led by a 7-0 

Early in the second quarter, 
the Demons had two touchdowns 
called back decause of penalities. 

The first and the more specta- 
cular of the two came w-h-e-n 
Guidry fired a pass from the Bull- 
dog 47 and connected with 35- 
yard line. Reding looked like a 
small Sherman tank as he thun- 
dered down the field and across 
the goal line. 

A flag hit the field at the eight- 
yard line, nullifying the score and 
a 15-yard illegal use of the hands 
fine saw the Demons put the ball 
in play at the 22. Once again 
Guidry hit Reding, but this time 
it was an off-sides penalty that 
ruined the play. 

Another Demon drive was halt- 
ed at the Bulldog eight when Tech 
defender Alton Reeves gobbled up 
a Guidry pass at the Tech two and 
ran it out of the danger zone. 

Disgusted with themselves for 
not being ahead by three or four 
touchdowns, the purple and white 
clad Demons ran off the field at 
half time leading by only seven 

A change of luck was in store 
for the Demons as they started 
off the second half with a scoring 
march from their own 13. 

Two Lewis-to-Gaspard passes, 
the first being for 35 yards and 
the second being for 17 yards, put 
(See Tech Loses, page 8) 

Kappa Sigma, Other Nine Lead Loops; 
Phi Epsilon, Uncouths In Deadlock 

At the termination of the third 
week of play, the Other Nine, 
Kappa Sigma, PEK, and the Un- 
couths reign as leaders of their 
respective touch football leagues. 

On Monday, only two games 
were played. Kappa Alpha down- 
ed TKE 13-0, while the Different 
Parts won their second game by 
defeating West Hall 20-12. The 
game between the Hungries and 
Pas Bas Tous was cancelled be- 
cause the Hungries were one 
man short. 

Tuesday's results revealed that 
PEK romped over Prudhomme 
12-0, and the Jena Giants lost 
their third game at the hands of 
the Has Beens 30-24. 

Wednesday's games showed 
that Kappa Sigma, the Other Nine 
and the Different Parts kept their 
records unblemished. Kappa Sig- 
ma blanked TKE 18-0 and the 
Other Nine trounced the Pas Bas 
Tous 28-6.

Troy's Red Wave To Try To Dampen 
Demon's Unblemished 5-0 Standing 

by Sports Staff 

Are the Demons as good as Alabama? How about Ole 
Miss? Surely as good as LSU! If you stop and add up the 
points that who scored against whom, you might come up 
with some interesting deductions. 

Noting that Alabama beat La. Tech 34-0 in an early sea- 
son contest, and that the Bulldogs fell to the Demons 28-7, it 
is simple to subtract seven from 28 and get 21 — then to sub- 
tract 21 from 34 and get 13. 

This would make Alabama, the number four team in the 
nation among the larger schools, only two touchdowns better 
than Coach Jack Clayton's Demons. 

Now if you count those two touchdowns against Tech 
that were called back and the extra points that could have 
been made after them, the Demons would be one point better 
than Alabama, the team that is trying for an unprecedented 
third-year-in-a-row national championship! 

And for Ole Miss, you figure it this way. Southern Missis- 
sippi defeated La. Tech 14-0; Ole Miss defeated Southern Mis- 
sissippi 14-7, so that makes the Rebels 21 points better than 
La. Tech, the same number that you got when you subtracted 
seven from 28. So the Demons and the Rebels would play to 
a tie if they met. 

If Alabama beats LSU more than 13 points, the Demons 
will be better than the Tigers. 

And if the Tigers beat Tulane, and the Demons remain 
undefeated and untied for the rest of the season, Clayton will 
have coached the best college football team in the state. 

Good Guesses 

We batted 1.000 last week by going four for four. And 
how about this one! We picked NORTHWESTERN 27-10 over 
Tech. We also looked smart by picking Southeastern over 
Northeast, Southwestern over Samford, and Lamar Tech 
over McNeese. 

This Week's Guesses 

NORTHWESTERN 31 -Troy 7— But they had better 
watch out for a post La. Tech letdown. 

McNeese 35 - La. College 7 — McNeese is on the recovery 

Southwestern 21 - Northeast 17 — USL is in for a scare 
if not an upset. It should take three touchdowns to do the job. 

Southeastern 24 - Pensacola 16 — The Lions are a tough 
team; too tough for the Navy. 

N AIA Awards Gridders Tie For Third; 
Clayton's Crew Might Climb Higher 

By virture of being undefeated 
and untied so far this season the 
National Association of Intercol- 
legiate Athletics (NAIA) poll has 
awarded the Demons a tie for 
the number three spot in the na- 
tion among small college teams. 

This rating was taken before 
the La. Tech game and does not 
include the Pensacola Navy (Pen- 
sacola Navy is not a college) game 
in the Demon's record, thus leav- 
ing the men in purple and white 
with a 3-0 record. 

All the other teams in the top 
ten are credited with having play- 
ed five games. 

In this poll, football coaches 
across the country cast votes for 
the top ten teams on a 10-9-8-etc. 

Deadlocked with Whitewater 
State of Wisconsin for third place 
this week, the Demons could pos- 

sibly advance higher when a new 
poll is released today.

A knife was found at the foot- 
ballball game last Saturday night 
by Paul Sepulvado. The knife has 
the name, J. B. "Bonnie" Moore, 
on it. 

It can be claimed by contact- 
ing Sepulvado in the Industrial 
Education Department located be- 
hind Bullard Hall. 

Fresh from a 28-7 conquest of 
their number one rival, the La. 
Tech Bulldogs, the Demons will 
risk their perfect 5-0 record when 
they meet the Troy, Ala., Red 
Wave tomorrow night at Troy. 

Sporting a 4-3 record, the Troy 
Red Wave has the earmarks of 
an explosive offensive team as 
indicated by the 200 points that 
they have scored in seven games. 

This will be the first time in 
the two school's histories that 
they've met on the gridiron field. 

The Red Wave has only 15 re- 
turning lettermen from last 
year's squad, but 12 transfers 
from major universities such as 
Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, and 
Tulane have made up for a short- 
age of experienced players. 

Troy, realizing that the Demons 
might be in a lackadaisical state 
after their big game of the sea- 
son with Tech, will be out to end 
a two-game losing streak before 
a homecoming audience. 

Sim Byrd, the Red Wave signal 

caller, has passed for 1,038 yards 
and has completed 81 of 142 
throws for 12 touchdowns. 

Byrd has only ten yards rushing 
to his credit, which indicates how 
much he puts the ball in the air. 

Danny Grant, one of the lead- 
ing pass receivers in the country, 
has pulled down 56 footballs for 
562 yards and has scored 12 touch- 

Halfback Jeff Cotton composes 
the Troy ground threat. Cotton is 
averaging 8.1 yards per carry. 

Linebacker Tommy Moffit, the 
spark in the Red Wave defensive 
unit, has been called one of the 
most outstanding players in the 
Alabama Collegiate Conference 
(Troy's Conference). 

In the field goal department, 
Danny Moore has been doing quite 
a job for his club. Moore has al- 
ready split the uprights fou|r 
times this aseson. 

But the Achilles heel of Troy 
is their defense. They have allow- 
ed the opposing offensive units to 

score a whopping 123 points 
through their first seven games. 

Perhaps the Troy defense was 
evaluated last week when their 
high-gear scoring unit ran up 
34 points, only to be out done 
by a tough Florence team, who 
put 35 points on the score board. 

The Northwestern defense has 
given up only 34 points all sea- 
son, one less than Florence scored 
against Troy in the Red Wave's 
most recent game. 

And Malcom Lewis has scored 
34 points to equal the sum that 
the Demon defense has yielded 
this year. 

Of course names like Don 
hard, Dick Reding and Lewis will 
once again be in charge of the 
Demon passing game. 

Fullback Russ Gielow, the 
squads leading rusher, and half- 
back Neal Prather, the second 
leading rusher, will team up with 
wingback Gary Pittman, fullback 
Randy Tate.etc, to do the job on 
the turf. 

Nobody has a smoother line!

'Sauce 7 And 'Potpourri 1 Staff Members 
Attend AP Conference In Philadelphia 


PUBLICATIONS STAFF members are lighthearted, buoyant-yes,

in Philadelphia. Left to right are Diane Nickerson, CURRENT SAUCE 
news editors; Al McMurtry, POTPOURRI business manager; and Sherry 
Sheppard, POTPOURRI associate editor. 

Indians Fall By One Point To Lions; 
USL Defeats Samford; McNeese Beaten 

Although most of the attention 
was focused on the Demon-Tech 
game, many other important 
games were played elsewhere in 
the GSC this week. 

Southwestern squeezed by sur- 
prisingly tough Samford, while 
McNeese was defeated by Lamar 
Tech, and Southeastern managed 
to win a Conference cliffhanger 
with Northeast to secure its initi- 
al GSC victory. 

Southwestern 6 Samford 3 

The use the field goal proved 
paramont as Southwestern 
downed Samford in Lafayette Sat- 
urday night. 

Both of the Bulldog's scores 
came on three pointers by kick- 
ing specialist Gerald Landry. 

USL got its first three-pointer 
after Jimmy Edney intercepted 
a Samford pass at the USL 30. 
The Bulldogs brought the ball 
down to the 10 where their drive 
was halted. On a fourth down, 
Landry entered the ball ame, and 
booted a 27-yard field goal to put 
the Bulldogs out in frnt. 

Refusing to be outdone, Sam- 
ford begain a drive of 78-yards 
which bogged down on the Bull- 
dog 22. The Samford kicking art- 
ist proved just as efficient by 
kicking a three pointer on fourth 

USL moved to the Samford 11 
in the third quarter where they 
again failed to penetrate any fur- 
ther. This time, Landry kicked a 
28-yarder to render the margin 
of victory. 

Lamar 10 McNeese 7 

The recovery of three costly 
McNeese fumbles enabled favor- 

Tech Loses— 

(Continued from page 6) 
the ball on the Tech 18. Tech's 
line was pushed back to the one, 
and fullback Kuss Gielow carried 
it over. 

Fullback Barry Fresh climaxed 
another Demon goal line advance 
when he ran 5 yards for the third 
Northwestern touchdown of the 
night. The score read 21-0 with 
1:15 left in the third quarter. 

Recovering a fumble on the 
Bulldog 34 only seconds later, 
Coach Jack Clayton's team scored 
again on a 34-yard toss from Gui- 
dry to Gaspard. 

Dazed and stunned from a third 
quarter barrage that put the De- 
mons in front 28-0, the Tech 
players found their way to their 
opponent's 40 before the punt. 
The Demons received the ball on 
their nine, but could not go with 
it and were forced to punt. 

Getting the pigskin on the 
Northwestern 42, the Techsters 
started to advance the ball again. 
Grinding a path through Clayton's 
clean-uniform reserve defensive 
unit, the Bulldogs finally managed 
to tally when halfback Eddie Tay-

In the first quarter, Lamar 
quarterback Phil Primm hit end 
Johnny Fuller with a 49-yard 
touchdown pass. 

The Cowboys struck back in 
the second quarter when Tony 
Berr gathered in a Lamar punt 
and rambled 41 yards to score. 

Midway in the third period, 
Lamar's field goal specialist John 
Wiersenna booted a 42-yard

SLC 14 Northeast 13 

Southeastern emerged from the 
abyss of defeat to vault to a 14- 
13 victory over Northeast Satur- 
day night. 

Northeast drew first blood 
when the Indians drove down to 
the 24 where Clark Blake split 
the uprights with a field goal. 

Southeastern came back in the 
second quarter to take the lead 
away from the Tribe. David Le- 
Sage threw a 21-yard pass to Tom- 
my Arbour to set up a touchdown 
by Gary Orgeron. 

The Indians returned to tie the 
score in the first quarter.Again 
the Tribe was halted at the three, 
so Clark Blake was sent in and 
he promptly split the goal post 
with a field goal. 

Northeast then drove a total of 
51 yards to score on what ap- 
peared to be the winning touch- 
down. Bobby Scafidel capped the 
drive with a one-yard plunge. 

With just 39 seconds left, 
Southeastern began their apalling 
comeback drive to victory. Bobby 
Cotten, subbing for regular quar- 
terback LeSage, threw a four- 
yard touchdown pass to Johnny 
O'Neil with just two seconds left 
in the game. This score made it 
13-12 in the Indians favor. 

On a fake kick for the extra 
point, Cotten lofted a pass to 
Chairlie Whitney to garner two 
points and a GSC win.

Negro and White 

Dual Education Groups Cause National Friction 

By Danny Gayer 
Current Sauce Editor 

Dual education associations 
in the South and the presence 
of the word "white" in the 
constitution of the Louisiana 
Teachers Association prevent 
Negro membership in the lo- 
cal Student Louisian Teach- 
ers Association. These com- 
prise the heart of the dispute 
between the state and nation- 
al organizations, according to 
SLTA President Mrs. Chris- 
tine Strother. 

A resolution drawn up at the 
July convention of the Student 
National Education Association 
(SNEA) was discussed at Sun- 
day's drive-in conference on cam- 
pus by Harvey Fails, associate 
vice-president of the SNEA and 
president of the Texas SEA. 

Whether the local SLTA will 
continue to be affiliated with the 
national group depends on an 
amendment to be presented at 
the state convention in November. 
The amendment, if presented, will 
move for the deletion of the word 
"white" from the Louisiana Char- 

At present, the local SLTA can- 

not accept Negro members be- 
cause of the constitution of the 
present LTA. Louisiana, however, 
has both an LTA (for white mem- 
bers) and an LEA (for Negroes). 

The Negro group also has a 
student affiliate, the SLEA. Simi- 
lar dual associations are main- 


.... Christine Strother 

tained in other Southern states. 

The main objection from the 
national organization to the dual 
association in the South includes: 
objection to unfair voting (Lou- 
isiana, for example, has two 
votes; Michigan has one vote) 
and to the practice of allotting 
money to delegates (again, Lou- 
isiana would get twice the money 
Michigan would, to defer travel 
expenses to conventions, etc.). 


The specific resolution that 
Fails discussed at the campus 
drive-in dealt with the merger 
of the two student groups. It re- 
quired a progress report from 
dual association states to be pre- 
sented each year at the national 
convention. The resolution did 
not mention any deadline for a 
merger. It suggested better com- 
munication between the groups 
and their state presidents as 
satisfactory for initial "progress". 

Originally, the national-state 
dispute arose when the Louisiana 
group failed to file a prospective 
merger plan by July 1, 1966. The 
group was placed on suspension 
by the NEA but the suspension 
was lifted, pending the state con- 
vention of this year. 

Though Texas merged both stu- 
dent and teacher groups last year, 
there is opposition from both 
white and Negro factions in Lou- 
isiana to such a merger. 

The Negro association is small- 
er and would lose votes and power 
if there is a merger. 

The suspension and the ulti- 
matum delivered by the NEA is 
not popular with the white asso- 
ciation in Louisiana. 

Dr. Robert Almost, president 
of the local LTA, offerred no 
predictions on the outcome of 
the iissue but did point to it as 
one of the most controversial is- 
sues the association has encount- 

The student group on campus 
will abide by the decision of the 
parent group. 

"Our members will teach in 
Louisiana and, at the present, 
receive more state than national 
benefits," according to local STLA 
president Mrs. Christine Strother. 

As for the possibility of Negroes 
joining an education association 
on our campus, Mrs. Strother had 
this to say: "While we operate 
in this "year of dispute," colored 
students cannot be members of 
the LTA. However, they can ac- 

Eight of Fifteen 
Top Spot Ballots 
Given To Demons 

A phone call from Tom Re- 
no, director of information for 
the National Association of In- 
tercollegiate Athletics (NAIA),

Demons have been rated by 
the NAIA as the number one 
small college team in the na-

Reno also indicated that the 
Demons are among six teams

SGA Checks Possibility Of Student Store Discount 

NSC Students may be able to 
look forward to lower prices at 
many of the downtown Natchi- 
toches stores — simply because 
they are students. 

Jerry Kemp, head of the Stu- 
dent Government Association's 
Community Service Committee, 
has been working with Mayor Ray 
Scott and the Natchitoches Cham- 
ber of Commerce in connection 
with proposed Student Discount 

"We came upon the idea while 
attending a national conference 

of student government associa- 
tions in Jacksonville, Fla.," Kemp 
related. "Several other schools, 
including Tennessee Tech and 
Georgia Tech, have incorporated 
the discount card program and 
have been quite successful in do- 
ing so." 

At the moment, the committee 
is in the process of drafting let- 
ters to send to the cities of Rus- 
ton and Hammond. "The purpose 
of this," explained Kemp, "is to 
compare the prices of merchan- 
dise in the three Louisiana col- 

lege towns which are approxi- 
mately the same size." 

When the committee receives 
replies from the other two towns 
they will present their findings 
to Scott and the Retail Merchant's 
Association of the Natchitoches 
Chamber of Commerce. 

The commitee hopes to work 
something out by February of 
1967," Kemp said, "so that, if 
everything goes well, the stu- 
dents can begin using the cards 
at the beginning of the spring 

Kemp also said the Mayor Scott 
had been extremely helpful. "He's 
all for the idea of better relations 
between NSC and Natchitoches," 
Kemp told the SGA, "and he even 
said that he would have a spot 
on the Chamber of Commerce 
for any of us (the SGA members) 
who want to attend the meeting. 
But he said that we would need 
evidence that prices in Natchi- 
toches were comparatively higher 
than in other Louisiana College 
towns of approximately the same 

The proposed discount cards, 
if set up like those in Georgia 
and Tennessee, would allow sub- 
stantial reductions in prices at 
service stations, florists, restau- 
rants, clothing stores, drug stores, 
and prehaps even food stores. 

NSC students could possibly 
use their ID cards to acquire the 
discounted merchandise, or they 
might be required to purchase a 
separate card ofr the services.

An SGA Satire 

Games Campus Leaders Play 

By Alice Anne Conner 

Last Monday night's free-for- 
all, better known as the North- 
western State College Student 
Government meeting, could easi- 
ly have been dubbed "An Even- 
ing of Fun and Games in Bullard 

In one of their better moments, 
the SGA voted unanimously to in- 
crease the salary of the book- 
keeper of the Student Loan Pro- 
gram from $30 a month to $60 a 
month. It seems the funds in the 
Student Loan Program have in- 
creased four-fold since its initia- 
tion in the 1950's and the salary 
of the bookkeeper had not in- 
creased at all. Of course, the SGA 
members didn't approve the in- 
crease without quite a haggle. 

Then came the real fun. Pres- 
ident Milton Rhea turned the 
gavel over to David Faraldo, who 
was in charge of reviewing the 
applications for freshman asso- 

Seventeen persons applied for 
the ten freshman associate posi- 
tions. One person asked why all 
17 couldn't be acceped, to which 
another replied, "Well, we want 
to keep it (the SGA) on a pretty 
high level." Everyone seemed to 
nod in agreement that elimi- 
nating seven of the aspiring 
workers would keep the SGA on 
a "pretty high level." 

Dean Dudley Fulton asked how 
many of the present members of 
the SGA had been freshman asso- 
ciates. One person raised a hand. 
"Well," said Fulton, "it seems as 
if we aren't doing too good a job 
of indoctrinating our freshman, 
doesn't it?" There was no reply. 

The Interview Game 

The "interviews" of the fresh- 
man applicants (using the term 

"interviews" loosely) then got 
underway. Shirley Grunwald, who 
is the sister of ASW President 
Sarah Grunwald, we were in- 
formed, was the first interviewee. 
Shirley, like the other applicants, 
was asked why she wanted to be 
a member of the SGA. All the 
answers were pretty much the 
same. "I want to serve NSC and 
my freshman class." "I want to 
do some good for the school." "I 
feel it's my duty to serve." Etc., 
etc., etc. 

The next two applicants, 
Charles Knicely and DeWayne 
Wicks, were Kappa Sig pledges. 
This bit of information was made 
quite clear to us numerous times 
during the ensuing babble. 

Jeannene Kirk, another appli- 
cant, "goes with a Kappa Sig," 
we were informed. 

Suzanne Elliott, a frosh from 
Byrd, was asked one additional 
question. One bright college 
leader took pains to query, "Why 
do you date Maxwell?" (SGA 
treasurer.) She couldn't manage 
a reply to the hysterical audience. 

One poor child who, inciden- 
tally, was not elected as one of 
the Big Ten, had to tell the 
group that she was a journalism 
major and that she worked on 
the Current Sauce staff. She was 
Mary Ann Anderson, and, aside 
from committing the hideous 
crime of being a part of the 
student newspaper, she had no 
visible faults. 

The Voting Game 

The rest of the applicants were 
queried in the same stupendous 
manner and the voting got under- 
way. Faraldo seemed to think it 
would be all right if everyone 
just shouted out the names of the 
ten applicants they preferred, 
one at a time of course, and let 




Although almost any student 
at NSC will admit that service in 
the new cafeteria is vastly im- 
proved, there are still some prob- 
lems which need to be remedied. 

One recent Sunday, an entire 
reunited family were waiting in 
front of me in the dinner line. 
The parents were, o f course, 
eager to see the new facility 
which had been built with their 
tax dollars, and to find out if the 
food really was improved. 

They were truly idisppointed 
when the girl ticket-puncher told 
them that they couldn't eat there. 
She said that she only admitted 
persons with tickets. Thus two 
disappointed parents and one 
hungry little brother were forced 
to wait until their children fin- 
ished eating. 

I don't say that NSC should 
begin a mass food-giveaway pro- 
gram and run itself out of busi- 
ness; just that we should feed the 
parents who thought enough of 
Northwestern to send their chil- 
dren here 


Editor's note: According to 
Giueseppe D'Avanzo, director of 
food services and facilities, the 
cafeteria policy is that nobody — 
including faculty members — can 
be served in the student cafeter- 
ias without a meal ticket, except 
when the administration desig- 
nates special events or holidays, 
such as Mom and Dad's Day, etc. 
The cafeterias have no cash reg- 
isters, and cannot accept money 
for meals. When the new student 
cent- u in operation, a full-sized 


I recently had the revolting 
experience of witnessing one of 
the most blatant abuses of reli- 
gion for the purpose of commer- 
cial exploitation that I have ever 

I refer to the motion picture 
"The Restless Ones" currently 
being shown in Natchitoches. 

I will concede that the picture 
has its good points, several in 
fact. But the abuses it makes 
upon a serious conscience in the 
pursuit of the almighty dollar is 
sickening indeed. One can sto- 
mach the childish appeal to the 
emotions, the third rate acting, 
and the generally naive approach 
to the solution to the "problem". 
But I for one cannot accept as 
right and proper the sanction or 
pseudo-sanction given to the film 
by the various campus groups 
who sell advance tickets to such 
a movie, the representatives of 
the film company who follow this 
film from town to town, or any 
individual who would have the 
sheer nerve to charge a person 
money and then try to subject 
him to a false atmosphere, com- 
plete with organist, reverend, and 
financial ghouls who would of 
course reap the profits from any 
such endeavor. 

Religion is a deeply personal 
thing, a communication between 
a man and his god. It is a pity 
that there are those who attempt 
to cheapen it in this fashion. 


cafeteria and snack bar will be 
available for purchasing food on 
campus, D'Avanzo emphasized. 

Scotty Maxwell write it on the 

President Rhea finally persuad- 
ed David for a secret ballot. He 
convinced everyone except Faral- 
do and Scotty, that is. They in- 
sisted upon writing their choices 
on the blackboard for all the 
world to see. Rhea repeatedly 
asked that this not be done, but 
Scotty replied, "Aw heck, Milton, 
it doesn't matter." Rhea finally 
gave in. 

The ten lucky frosh were 
finally elected and the council 
went on to more business. Treas- 
urer Scotty Maxwell gave a re- 
port on the Potpourri, Current 
Sauce, dramatics, loans, Student 
Body Agency, and entertainment 
funds. Concerning the Student 
Government Fund, Scotty related, 
"And probably by the 13th of 
this month we'll have a report 
on how much money we have." 

Faraldo was asked to give a 
report on the Righteous Brothers 
concert and homecoming. 

"The Righteous Bros, will be 
here Wednesday night, and we 
need volunteers to sell tickets," 
he reported. He also mentioned 
something about having two bands 
for homecoming so there would 
be "constant music." 

Patti Castille gave a report on 
the plans to charter busses to the 
McNeese game. "We can only get 
two busses," she disclosed, "and 
the price will still be the same." 
Dean Fulton reported that 12 
students had signed up to go on 
said busses. 


The final game of the evening 
began when a motion was made 
to buy the Circle K boys blazers 
for their service to the school. 
Patti Castille, an adversary of 
the movement, sounded her 

"I don't think we should buy 
these blazers because the Circle 
K has not been around long 
enough to deserve our buying 
them.. .and I don't think the stu- 
dents should vote on the amend- 
ment (the suggestion would in- 
volve an amendment to the consti- 
tution) because the students 
don't know what they're doing 
most of the time anyway, and if 
they vote, it's because they've 
been brainwashed beforehand." 

The motion was withdrawn, 
and thus ended another rousing 
session of those little games cam- 
pus leaders play. 

Seniors Invited 

Acting President Arnold R. Kil- 
patrick invites all members of the 
senior class to participate in the 
Homecoming program Saturday, 
Nov. 12. 

Seniors are urged to attend the 
program and, in particular, the 
barbecue luncheon in the Coli- 
seum at 11:30 a.m. 

Interested seniors should pick 
up luncheon tickets at the office 
of Joe W. Webb > secretary-trea- 
surer of the Alumni Association 
in Caldwell Hall. There is no 
charge for the tickets. 

Mid-Term Madness 

American Education Week 

Inaugurated in 1921 to call the attention 
of the public to the importance of education 
in a democracy and to remind the average 
"Joe" of our society that good schools are his 
responsibility, American Education Week 
(Nov. 6-13) still serves today as a vital stimu- 
lant for moral and financial support for our 
educational system. 

Schools across the nation will take advan- 
tage of this special week to put their public 
relations teams to work on the jobs of inform- 
ing the public of the status of their system and, 
more important, on how that system can be 
aided by the individual, parent, or student. 

The value of such a national observance 
depends a great deal on the initiative of the 
individual school to take advantage of the 
opportunity this week affords it. There is no 
limit to the benefits a well-planned program 
can hand a school in the way of better under- 
standing between all persons involved. 

And there is the possibility that this week 
will be just another "week" saluting another 
organization or institution. What is important 
is that Americans take a proper interest in our 
educational systems and manifest that interest 
with some appropriate form if action. 

For 43 years, the basic purpose of this 
week has not changed. The situation of Ameri- 
can Education has undergone many changes 
in that time, however. 

Improvements and increased enrollments 
prove satisfying to everyone who realizes the 
importance of a good education and a 
thorough one, but as our colleges become 
more crowded and our school population 
soars, problems of every kind occur. 

The basic purpose of the celebration of 
this coming week as American Education 
Week can lead to the solutions of many of 
these problems.

Spanish Convent Setting 

"Cradle Song" Casf Announced 

From the threads of a gentle 
story about a baby girl left on 
the steps of a Spanish convent is 
woven the theme of the forth- 
coming production of the North- 
western State College theatre. 
"The Cradle Song," a two-act com- 
edy by Martinez Sierra, will have 
a two-day run Nov. 17 and 18 in 
the Fine Arts Auditorium with 
curtain time at 8 each evening. 

Susie Chancey of DeQuincy, 
Susie Hames of Baton Rouge, and 
Mary Ellen Davis of LeCompte 
will lead the cast as veteran nuns; 
the Prioress, the Vicaress, and the 
Mother Mistress of Novices. 

L y d i a Talmadge of Natchit- 
oches will join the nuns as Sis- 
ter Tornera. Judy Causey of 
Baton Rouge will lead the young 
novices as Sister Joanna of the 
Cross, with Barbara Gresham as 
the mischievous Sister Marcella, 
Martha Lou Carroll of Natchit- 
oches as Sister Sagrario, Mary 
Stovall of Boyce as Sister Inez, 
and Janice Mancuso of New Or- 
leans as Sister Maria Jesus. 

Dorothy Martin of Shreveport 
will be seen in the second act as 
the grown-up Teresa, who is to 
marry Antonio, played by Byron 

Nail of New Orleans. Joffree 
Brooks will play the visiting doc- 
tor, and Bruce Brown of Peotone, 
111., will be the messenger. 

Lay sisters will be played by 
Peggy Beasley of New Orleans, 
Helen McLain of Campti, Sylvia 
Thigpen of Mandeville, and Karen 
Dowty of Shreveport. 

Translated from the Spanish, 
"The Cradle Song" concerns the 
girl's life in the convent. As she 
becomes a young adult, romance 
enters the story and with it 
comes much excitement among 
the nuns in preparing for the 
forthcoming marriage. Ever pres- 
ent, however, is concern over the 
girl's adjustment to a new, 
strange world outside the con- 

Frank Magers, technical direc- 
tor of the college theatre, has 
planned an interior that will de- 
pict a typical structure of the era. 
To be seen onstage will be the 
interior parlor of the convent and 
the courtyard beyond it. Magers, 
with his design, hopes to capture 
the atmosphere and religious 
aura of an age-old Dominican

Campus SLTA, Nation Prepare For 
American Education Week Activities 

"Education Ads Up" has been 
anounced as the theme for Amer- 
ican Education Week (Nov. 6-13), 
according to Wallace Borden, 
head of the SLTA committee in 
charge of publicity for the event.

Librarians Name 
Children's Week 

This past week, designated 
Children's Book Week by nation- 
al librarians, has been given 
much attention here at NSC. 
Children's Book Week, which ori- 
ginated when a controversy arose 
through a need for good child- 
ren's books, is a national pro- 
gram, observed annually by col- 
leges in this area. 

Each Book Week commemora- 
tion involves libraries, book- 
stores, schools, and manufactur- 
ers across the nation. Librarians, 
educators and publishers in other 
countries have been inspired by 
our Book Week to undertake 
similar programs. 

There is presently a display in 
Russell Library featuring some of 
the better children's books. The 
display will be exhibited through 
November 12. 

together in an effort to publi- 
cize the learning institution and 
its beneficial effects on our so- 

One of the primary goals of 
the week's activities is to fa- 
miliarize the parent and the in- 
terested citizen in the function 
of education in our society. 

Local plans include poster dis- 
plays, radio publicity, newspaper 
stories, speeches, etc. 

The week will be officially pro- 
claimed by Mayor Ray Scott of 
Natchitoches. Poster displays will 
utilize comic characters, including 
B.C. and the Roadrunner, for dis- 
play in dining areas on campus 
and in the city and in the Stu- 
dent Center. 

Local civic clubs and ministers 
are being urged to stress the 
value of education to their respec- 
tive groups and to make the gen- 
eral public more aware of the 
important role education plays in 
modern society. 

An open house will take place 
in Warren Easton Conference 
Room 209 Thursday from 2 until 
5 p.m. for the general public. 

According to Borden, "The fur- 
ther one pursues an education, 
the higher the position he may 
attain, thus leading to a more 
balanced life, sounder judgment 
and economic ease."

ics. Even the head of campus se- 
curity was crouched under the 
stage, snapping pictures. 

The Righteous Brothers packed 
in the largest crowd Wednesday 
night that Prather Coliseum has 
yet seen. 

The mood was set with comedy 
singers Burt Holiday and Ronnie 
GayJord, who came bouncing on 
stage like jolly green dwarfs. 
Gaylord, who used to be an altar 
boy, blessed the audience with 
the microphone and hilarious pro- 
trayals of undying Southern Con- 
federatehood. His counterpart, 
Burt Holiday, a bubbling, smiling, 
Burt Parks type, mouthed ad-libs 
and dummied for Gaylord. 

The rock-and-roll brother-sis 
ter team came next. Sexy, sleazy 
April Stevens, wrapped in beli- 
bottomed glitter, sang blues and 
rock in a sultry growl. 

Nino Tempo came hip-slipping 
onto the stage and accompanied 
April by belching low notes and 
sweating himself in on tenor sax. 
Then They Came 

Then came the RSghjteoUs 

sound, via the Brothers them- 

When asked before the per- 
formance if they felt anything 
moving while they were onstage, 
Bill Medley quipped, "my feet" — 
they went on to prove that feet 
are not the only swinging items 
in a Righteous Brothers concert. 

From the vantage point of the 
front row floor, it was easy to see 
that tall, thin Bill Medley was 
the essense of intensity. Treating 
each song as a religious experi- 
ence, Medley writhed and crooned 
enough coolness to keep the Coli- 
seum air-conditioned all winter. 
Bobby Hatfield, pink-faced and 
happy with everything he sang, 
stole the limelight with the ever- 
popular "Unchained Melody." 

The Righteous Brothers un- 
wittingly robbed the NSC crowd 
of their probable standing ovation 
with a rapid exit and no encore. 
They were bound for Duty's, and 
during a pause in the last roman- 
tic melody, Bobby Hatfield play- 
fully urged, "Hurry up, will ya? 
I love pizza!" 

Even When She Answers, He Still Gets the Busy Signal. 


Lately, every time I call my girl, she's either "not in" or "not inter- 
ested." Last week I called her 23 times and couldn't even make a 
0* ^ & . coffee date. The trouble started when she started dating a guy 

who owns a Dodge Coronet. Now she goes to parties with him, 
dances, football games, etc. Do you think I should call her again, 
or should I forget her and break her heart? 



I think your next call should be to your Dodge Dealer. Then make 
a date to see the '67 Coronet, the car that's breaking hearts all 
over America. You'll find that its good looks are pretty hard to 
resist. Now, before you break your girl's heart, give her another 
break. Ask her to go for a ride in your new Coronet. I think she'll 
get the signal. 

Here's the heartbreaker . . .'67 Dodge Coronet 500. A campus favorite with its great new looks, ride, 
and list of extras that are standard. Like bucket seats with either a companion seat in the middle or a 
center console. Plush carpeting. Padded instrument panel. Padded sun visors. Seat belts, front and 
rear. A choice of Six or V8 models. And lots more. So get with '67 Dodge Coronet and get busy.

HALFBACK KEN CALLENS, No. 23, tries to find an opening as Steve Gaspard, No. 80, attempts to 
place a block on Red Wave tackle Tommy Moffit. Malcolm Lewis, No. 11, and Terry Watson, No. 71 look 
on with an interested official. Both Callens and Gaspard are freshmen. 

Quick Scores, Dodd Save Game 

Scoring twice in the last two 
minutes of the second quarter, 
the Demons managed to preserve 
their 6-0 record by defeating the 
Troy Red Wave 14-7. 

A 38-yard pass from quarter- 
back Don Guidry to end Dick 
Reding set up the first touch- 
down as Coach Jack Clayton's 
offensive unit, the "Purple 
Team," finally began to roll. 

With the ball on the Red Wave 
14, Guidry rolled out and was 
knocked off his feet at the 11. 
Halfback Gary Pittman plowed 
his way to the six, then Guidry 
ran again to the one foot line. 

Fullback Barry Fresh, taking 
the handoff from Guidry, ran 
through the Troy line for six 
points, and Malcolm Lewis added 
the seventh with only 1:57 re- 
maining in the first half of play. 

Hoping to tie the score, Sim 
Byrd, the Troy signal-caller took 
to the air. His first pass was 
picked off by defensive back Ri- 
chard Concilio on the Troy 37. 
He was immediately knocked to 
the ground, but the Demons had 
the ball again. 

Quarterback Malcolm Lewis 
stepped on the field and hit end 

Steve Gaspard at the 32. The lu- 
crative combination of Lewis to 
Gaspard worked once more, and 
the Demons found themselves on 
the 14.

High NAIA Rating 

Only nine points shy of being 
called the number one team in 
the National Association of Inter-

the Demons could very easily 
move into the top position when 
a new poll is released today. 

The team that received more 
votes than NSC did, New Mexico 
Highlands College, fell to defeat 
over the weekend leaving the De- 
mons an excellent chance at the 
first spot. 

Last week's game with Troy is 
not included in the Demon's re- 
cord. Neither is the Pensacola 
Navy contest counted as a regu- 
lar game by the NAIA since Pen- 
sacola Navy is not a college.

seconds left as Lewis went back 
to pass, and pass he did, to Red- 
ing at the one. With five seconds 
left in the half, Russ Gielow, the 
Demon's leading ground gainer, 
rumbled over for the touchdown. 

Lewis kicked, and the score was 
14-0 when the half ended. 

Late in the third quarter, an 
intercepted pass and a 15-yard 
walk-off against the Demons gave 
the Red Wave the pigskin on the 
Demon 35. 

Jeff Cotton, the game's leading 
rusher, was unstoppable as he 
made two nine-yard gallops, one 
six-yard run and a three yard 
plunge to put the Red Wave on 
their opponents eight. 

Then on a sweep around end, 
Cotton scooted around the de- 
fense and scored standing up in 
the end zone without even being 

Another Red Wave interception 
put the Demons in serious trouble 
as Troy took control of the foot- 
ball at the "Purple and White's" 
40 yard line. 

The Demon's perfect record 
hung in the balance as the scat- 
back Cotton ran up the middle 
of the Demon line to the 25. 
From there, the Red Wave washed 
their way to the 13 on short run- 
ning plays before a 15-yard penal- 
ty pushed them back to the 28. 

But they were not going to let 
a penalty stop them now! Byrd 
back-peddled and hit end Jimmy 
Hedrick at the 12. 

Once more, the Troy quarter- 
back went back and let the ball 
sail in the direction of the end 
zone. Just before the ball hit the 
intended receiver, Al Dodd, the 
Demon's All-American safety, 
snatched it from the air and went 
down on his knee in the end zone 
giving the Demons the ball on 
their own 20. 

The remainder of the game 
was played on Troy's half of the 
field with the Demons missing a 
field goal and with Troy trying 
unsuccessfully to mount a scor- 
ing drive.

Bowling Tourney Slows Football Play 
As Intramural Season Goes Full-Swing 

by Bob Ardoin 

This past week found Intra- 
mural sports involved in much 
activity as they sponsored a bowl- 
ing tournament in addition to the 
regular league touch football 

Action in touch football was 
held at a minimum, as not all of 
the teams participated in games. 
The league finals are being play- 
ed this week to determine league 

Football games on Monday- 
found the Has Beens downing Pas 
Bas Taus by a score of 14-6. In 
the only other game on Monday 
PEK swamped the Different Parts 

Gridiron action on Tuesday saw 
Kappa Alpha squeezing by Pi 
Kappa by a 7-0 count. The Hung- 
ries forfeited another game in 
league play to Jena's Giants. West 
Hall completed the day's action 
by trouncing the Prudhomme Hal- 
lers 38-0. 

Football action Wednesday re- 
vealed that the Other 9 mauled 
the hapless Zygotes 25-12. The 
Uncouths followed their example 
by knocking the Newman Club 
by a 19-6 score. 

The league bowling tournament 
was held Thursday, and all foot- 
ball games were discontinued on 
this day due to the innovation in 

Bowling Tournament 

In the bowling tournament 
sponsored by the Intramural lea- 
gue, Sigma Tau Gamma garnered 

first place over the other partic- 
ipating Greek organizations by 
totaling a 1916-point three game 

Placing second in the tourna- 
ment was the Kappa Sigma frat- 
ernity with a 1872-point series. 
In third position was Kappa Al- 
pha with a 1725 total. Fourth was 
held by Phi Kappa Epsilon with 

Individual leaders in the three 
game series were Peter Jabb of 
KA, first with a 519 total; Mike 
Westmoreland, second with 493; 
and Warren Stovall, third with 
491. Westmoreland bowled for 
Sigma Tau while Stovall scored 
his pins under the banner of 
Kappa Alpha. 

Points gathered in this tourna- 
ment will be added on to the team 
totals, and will be a factor in de- 
termining the league champion.

uled for Wednesday and Thurs- 
day nights at the Fair Grounds.

Cowboys Out After Demons Mark; 
Conference Lead To Go To Victor 

by Steve Gunn 

Defeat will cost the loser of 
tomorrow night's Demon-McNeese 
game the top spot in the Gulf 
States Conference (GSC). 

Both squads have identical 2-0 
league records, but something has 
to change when they clash in 
Cowboy Stadium at Lake Charles 
at 7:30 p.m. 

Perhaps the Demons have even 
more at stake than McNeese since 
they are the proud owners of a 
spotless 6-0 record while the 
Cowboys wear only a 4-3 overall 

A defeat would probably also 
mean that the Demons would fall 
from the elite top-ten small col- 
lege teams in the National As- 
sociation of Intercollegiate Ath- 
letics (NAIA) poll. 

Last week's NAIA poll, released 
Friday, showed that Coach Jack 
Clayton's gridders are only nine 
votes away from being the num- 
ber one team. Since that poll was 
released, New Mexico Highlands 
College, the only team to receive 
more votes than the Demons, has 
been defeated. 

When a new poll is released 
today, the "Purple and White" 
could very well be the leader in 
the race for the mythical NAIA 

Tough Job 

It will not be an easy task to 
defeat the Cowboys because 
they're good on both offense and 
defense this year. McNeese, 

always a good example of a stop- 
them-to-defeat-them football team 
has managed to put together an 
offense that rolled up 21 points 
against Pensacola Navy, 18 
against Northeast and 31 in their 
latest game with the Louisiana 
College Wildcats. 

In what was to be a rebuilding 
year, McNeese, (a co-holder of the 
GSC title along with Southwest- 
ern), like the Demons, was not 
given much chance to win the 
GSC throne. 

Never the less, due to some 
vastly improved performers, the 
Cowboys are in it again. 

Among these performers is 
quarterback David Bourgeois, 
who has developed into an ex- 
tremely effective field marshal, 
and has become the throwing 
part of a passing combination 
with end Frank Miller as the 

Leading Rusher 

Fullback Carol Breaux, the 
club's leading rusher, halfback 
Tony Ber and freshman tailback 
Larry Whatley represent a potent 
threat on the ground to all op- 

McNeese also has two gciod 
tackles that go both ways when 
necessary First is David Poche, 
a 6'4", 230 pound giant, while the 
second is Norman Porch, a 5'11". 
205 pounder, who may be smaller 
than his comrade, but this doesn't 

By Sports Staff 

All the easy games are over, and the Demons must face 
three tough GSC foes in a row before they can say they're con- 
ference champs. 

There is also the possibility that they could go undefeated 
and untied. If somehow they should manage to do this, it will 
be only the third time in the gridiron history of this institu- 
tion that this has happened. 

Only in 1932 and in 1939 has this phenomenom occurred. 
The '32 team won all eight contests, having one of its easier 
games with La. Tech (33-0) and having its closest escape with 
La. College (6-0). 

The '39 gang posted an astounding 11-0 record and allowed 
only 18 points in all 11 games, which came in the form of 
touchdowns. Never was more than one touchdown scored in 
one game by a Demon opponent, and in each instant where a 
touchdown was scored the opposition was unable to gain the 
extra point. 


Even though we missed only one game last week, raising 
our season percentage to .667, we didn't do so well at picking 
the exact scores of the games. We picked the Demons to win 
by a 31-7 margin. Well, at least we got the 7 correct. And we 
picked Southeastern to beat Pensacola Navy 24-16. Both

mean that he won't be as tough. 

Linebacker Art O'Reilly is also 
one of the better Cowboy de- 


The Demons will have to de- 
pend on their powerful and pro- 
ductive offense if they hope to 
saddle the cowboys. 

Once again, leading the offense 
will be two of the best quarter- 
backs in the conference. Don 
Guidry and Malcolm Lewis, the 
Demon's passing duo, have 
thrown for 556 yards and 476 re- 
spectively. Lewis has thrown for 
four touchdowns, while Guidry 
has tossed one less. 

Russ Gielow, the team's lead- 
ing ground gainer with 219 yards 
for the season to his credit will 
join Gary Pittman and Neal Pra- 
ther in the backfield in this cru- 
cial game. 

Al Dodd, who saved the day in 
the Troy game, will be a threat 
as a safety and as a punt and 
kickoff return specialist. Dodd 
has grabbed six footballs from 
mid air and has a punt return 
aerage of 23.2 yards and a kick- 
off return average of 22.3 yards. 

THEY CALL HIM MR. INTERCEPTION because that's what Al Dodd 
does when he's not making punt and kickoff returns. In the game with 
Troy, Dodd intercepted his seventh pass of the year and saved the day 
for his club. Dodd holds the GSC record for pass interceptions with

first of this season's National Geo- 
graphic specials, focuses on Brit- 
ish anthropologist Louis B. Leakey 
and his 40-year search for the an-

Socrates was hailed as a wise- 
man, but his neglect of public 
worship, and outspoken criticism 
of Athenian morals and conduct, 
resulted in an indictment for im- 
piety and corrupting the youth 
of Athens. 

Contemptuous of the charge, 
the great teacher insists upon

The Cradle Song," a two-act 
comedy by Martinez Sierra, will 
open Thursday Night at eight for 
a two-day run in the Fine Arts 

The story concerns a convent of 
Dominican nuns who find an a- 
bandoned baby at their doorstep. 
Act one, mainly an insight into 
the character and emotion of each 
of the nun's lives, is a prelude to 
the poignant farewell to the 
grown-up Teresa in the second 

Susie Chancey of DeQuincy 
leads the cast as the Mother Prior- 

ess, who manages the convent 
with authority and grace. Susie 
Hames of Baton Rouge plays the 
Vicaress, who thinks the convent 
should be managed differently — 
and would like to try her hand at 
it. Lydia Talmadge of Natchi- 
toches plays Sister Tornera, and 
Mary Stovall of Boyce completes 
the bevy of professed nuns. 

Judy Causey of Baton Rouge 
will lead the young novices as 
Sister Joanna of the Cross, with 
Barbara Gresham of Natchitoches 
as the mischievous Sister Mar- 
cella, Martha Lou Carroll of 
Natchitoches as Sister Sagrario, 

and Janice Mancuso of New Or- 
leans as Sister Maria Jesus. 

Dorthy Martin of Shreveport 
will be seen in the second act as 
the grown-up Teresa, who is to 
marry Antonio, played by Byron 

Nail of New Orleans. Joffree

visiting doctor, and Bruce Brown 
of Peotone, 111., will be the mes- 

Lay sisters will be played by 
Peggy Beasley of New Orleans, 
Helen McLain of Campti, Sylvia 
Thigpen of Mandeville, and Ka- 
ren Dowty of Shreveport. 

Translated from the Spanish, 
"The Cradle Song" is under the 
direction of Dr. Edna West, as- 
sisted by Nancy Craft of Alexan- 
dria. Technical director is Mr. 
Frank Magers.

Education Majors 

Teachers' Test Dates Announced 

By Diane Nickerson 

Senior education majors BE- 
WARE! ! There is one more re- 
quirement that must be met be- 
fore donning that cap and gown. 

All persons graduating from 
NSC's school of education are re- 
quired to take the National 
Teacher Examination (NTE) and 
have a copy of the results of the 
examination sent to the Dean of 

This national teacher's test will 
be given on the NSC campus 
three times this year; Jan. 7, 
March 18, and July 1. 

Seniors are advised to take the 
examinations during the semester 
immediately prior to the semes- 
ter or summer term in which he 
expects to graduate. 

Applications to take the Edu- 
cational exam must be secured 
from the Counseling and Testing 
Center, completed and mailed 
with the required fee to the Edu- 
cational Testing Service, Prince- 
ton, N.J., at LEAST five weeks 
in advance of the date of exami- 

The exam will consist of two 

major parts; the "Common Exami- 
nation" and the "Teaching Area 
Examination" which represents 
the student's major. 

If there is no area examination 
in a student's major, the student 
is encouraged to take the test in 
his minor. The teaching examina- 
tions are available in all educa- 
tion fields at NSC except French, 
German, Latin, Spanish, speech 
and library science. 

The teacher exam results are 
used by many large school dis- 
tricts, including Caddo, East 

Baton Rouge and Orleans, as one 
of several factors in the selection 
of new teachers, and in some 
states for certification or licensing 
of teachers. 

The test scores are also used 
as a basis of evaluating the teach- 
er-education program at NSC. 

If you have already taken the 
examinations, you are NOT re- 
quired to take them a second 
time. For further information 
contact your adviser, the Dean 
of Education, or the Director of 
the Counseling and Testing Cen-

Cultural Dialogue 

Texas A&M Can't Be Forgiven EaSt'WeSt Scholarships Offered 




The idea that a student newspaper should 
favorably reflect on the school as a whole and 
be, in essence, another publicity organ for the 
"good" of the school can be carried a little too 
far by some administrators. 

The example of Texas A&M set forth in 
the ACP news story on this page is a shocking 

When the leaders and the future leaders 
of our nation are subjected to complacent 
agreement and have nothing but "nice things 
to say" about their school, their nation and 
their superiority, someone is forgetting words 
that this nation is based on. 

"Of the people, by the people and for the 
people" are words close to every American. 
They are words that cannot be stepped on as 
easily as some do. 

The purposeful suppression of letters in 
the student newspaper at Texas A&M and the 
obvious slam to the student editor are a dis- 
grace to such an institution. 

Where, above all, the basic ideas of our 
democracy should abound and benefit — in our 
colleges and universities — they sometimes are 
at their weakest. And the congressmen worry 
about the appeal of socialism, demonstration, 
riot, and disagreement to the college student. 

It is one thing to offer the chance to citi- 
zens to acquire an education but it is entirely 
another thing altogether to expect such citi- 
zens to forfeit some of their basic rights in 
return for such an offer. 

Here at Northwestern, the situation in re- 
gard to the student newspaper is quite dif- 
ferent. Letters, editorials, and critical attitudes 
are allowed in the columns of the Current 

Criticism of the U.S. role in Viet Nam, the 
student government, the poor support for a 
campus literary magazine and the cultural 
attitude of the college as a whole have taken 
place within the past year. 

Letters condemning everything from local 
movies to the newspaper's review of Jay and 
the Americans have appeared, uncensored but 
signed. They are signed not because it is the 
policy of the administration but because it is 
the policy of the present editorial staff who 
believe a man should not be afraid to attach 
his name to his ideas. 

In the college situation, the publisher is 
often the student governing agency — or the 
Journalism department or division. Still, it 
is important that such groups receive criticism 
though they are publishers. 

Taking this idea of the publisher a little 
further, we have to credit the student body 
that pays for the paper with the title rather 
than their middle men, who merely provide 
the paper work for the job. 

In almost all situations, it is the individual 
student and his companions who publish the 
paper because it is their money that pays for 

This is where Texas A&M becomes unclear 
in its thinking. For a university to neglect such 
a truth is unforgivable. 


, ... 

The East-West Center, an ex- 
periment in international educa- 
tion involving students from the 
United States, Asia and the Paci- 
fic, is offering 70 scholarships to 
Americans for the 1967-68 aca- 
demic year. 

Initially awarded for one year, 
these scholarships are for gradu- 
ate work in Asia-Pacific area 
studies and languages at the Uni- 
versity of Hawaii. Some qualified 
students may have their grants

nations learn about different cul-

The University of Hawaii (en-

University Takes Over Newspaper; 
Censorship, Letter Cause Change 

The question of censorship 
arose at Texas A&M Univer- 
sity recently as the university 
assumed the role of publisher 
of the campus newspaper, 
The Battalion, the University 
of Texas' Daily Texan re- 

But Earl Rudder, president of 
the school, claimed there is no 
censorship at Texas A&M. 

The recent masthead change, 
listing the university as publisher, 
followed by a few days another 
change in which Jim Lindsey, 
director of student publications 
and the university's news and 
information service, was listed 
as editor-in-chief, Lindsey's as- 
sistant as assistant editor and 
Tommy De Frank, former editor- 
in-chief, as student editor. 

The changes followed this ser- 
ies of events: 

Sept. 21: the appearance of a 
letter to the editor critical of 
A&M's ex-students' association 
signed "A Vet's Wife." 

Sept. 22: the reported censor- 
ship by Lindsey of a front page 
lead story on the organization of 
a political forum and the banning 
of further letters to the editor on 
the grounds that the Sept. 21 let- 
ter was unsigned and inaccurate. 

Sept. 27: the issuance by the 
Board of Directors of a resolution 
saying that "policies pertaining 
to student publications are mat- 
ters to be handled within the 
structure of the university ad- 

Rudder's recent meeting with 
the Board, which resulted in the 
latest masthead change, was re- 
portedly held to make minor 
policy revisions but De Frank 
claimed Rudder called the meet- 
ing to give the Board power to 
fire him. 

When asked before the meeting 
whether criticism of the admini- 
stration would be allowed under 
the current set-up, Rudder re- 
plied, "Who is the publisher? 
Would you take the publisher to 
task? All I'm saying is that this 
newspaper will be run like a 
professional newspaper."

A New Face 

Historic Caldwell In Repair 

By Steve Gunn 

Timeworn and crumbling Cald- 
well Hall is undergoing facelift- 
ing surgery on the outside, while 
on the inside, an even more com- 
plex operation is taking place. 

Builder's Service of Natchito- 
ches is now in the process of re- 
modeling the interior, and Ad- 
vanced Waterproofing of Metarie, 
La., is repairing the exterior. 

On the interior, central air- 
conditioning will be installed, 
and ceilings, floors and walls will 
be modernized. 

Externally, the structure will 
be sealed and waterproofed. 
Loose and missing brick are being 

replaced to improve the archaic 
building's appearance. 

The job on the inside will cost 
$207,000, considerably more than 
the $22,125 for the exterior. 

According to Dr. Charles 
Thomas, dean of administration, 
the renovation of Caldwell will 
not only preserve many senti- 
mental attachments that exgradu- 
ates have with NSC, but a useful 
and much-needed classroom build- 
ing will have been saved. 

Until a new ultra-modern class- 
room structure is completed 
sometime in the future, Caldwell 
will continue to serve as the 
home of the language and math 

When the time comes for the 
language and math departments 
to transfer to the newer building, 
education classes from an over- 
crowded Warren Easton, along 
with nursing classes and teacher 
offices, will occupy the Hall. 

At the moment, teacher offices, 
all classes on the third floor and 
all classes in one room on the 
second floor have been moved to 
other parts of the campus. 

No information is available as 
to when the remainder of the 
classes will be removed from the 
second floor or as to when the 
classes on the third floor will be

(Editor's note: Though received 
too late to be considered for the 
editorial page, this letter to the 
editor from junior SGA repre- 
sentative Gary Foster is printed 
in this week because of it's time- 

Dear Editor: 

I should like to express an o- 
pinion on a matter that I think 
should be brought to the atten- 
tion of the student body. 

I had a good laugh at the man- 
ner in which last weeks Current 
Sauce article, "Games Campus 
Leaders Play," was mishandled. 
I, first as a representative of the 
Junior Class and foremost as a 
student of NSC, can not allow my 
co-workers in the Student Govern- 
ment Association and the Associa- 
tion itself to be ridiculed and 
treated lightly as an irresponsi- 
ble, useless, and uncontrollable 

Many of the statements made 
in the forementioned article were 
true but also many ranged from 
half-true to untrue. Many of our 
elected representatives were char- 
acterized as being incapable lead- 
ers. This is untrue and you as 
students are being insulted by 
being told that you personally 
elected officers who seemingly 
do nothing but play "those little 
games campus leaders play." 

These meetings many times are 
long and indeed very boring and 
ofter an interjection of humor is 
welcomed. But for one to say 
that a Student Government Asso- 
ciation meeting is "An evening of 
fun and games in Bullard Hall" 
is absurd. I would like to invite 
each reader to the "games" this 
Monday night for the purpose of 
forming a first hand opinion as 
to the real nature of the meetings. 

Personal Observations and Cor- 

1. The Association did not ap- 
prove the increase in salary of 
the treasurer of the Student Loan 
Fund "without quite a haggle" 
simply because it thought matters 
concerning over $30 thousand 
dollars of your money should not 
be treated lightly. 

2. The article stated that 7 of 

the 17 applicants for Freshmen 
were eliminated in order to keep 
the SGA on "a pretty high level." 
The presence or absence of these 
associaties has nothing to do with 
the high level of the present SGA. 
In the past 10 associates have been 
selected by the SGA. The position 
is thought to be an honorary one. 
Accepting all the applications to 
such a position tends to reduce 
the honor of the position and not 
put SGA on a lower level. 

3. It was pointed out that only 
one of the present SGA members 
had been a Freshman Associate. 
The paper went on to say that 
there was no reply. There was 
indeed a reply and quite a bit of 
discussion. It was concluded that 
the real purpose of the Freshman 
Associate is not to prepare them 
for future years in SGA but to 
serve their freshmen year as "as- 
sociates" for the SGA. 

4. It was insinuated that Shir- 
ley Grunwald was elected Fresh- 
man Associate simply because she 
is the sister of A.W.S. President, 
Sarah Grundwald. Some of her 
"other" qualifications are: She is 
secretary of her Sigma Sigma 
Sigma pledge class, president of 
the demonettes, and obtained a 
3.89 grade average at Woodlawn 
High School in Shreveport. 

5. David Faraldo, vice - presi- 
dent of the Study Body, suggested 
that the association vote for the 
Freshman Associates by a show 
of hands; as has been done in the 
past. The Current Sauce said he 
wanted the members to "shout 
out" the names of the students 
to be voted upon. Milton Rhea, 
president of the Student Body, 
suggested that the representatives 
write down the names of their 10 
choices. This was done. 

6. In the final "epilogue", Patti 
Castille, Junior Women's Repre- 
sentative, was misquoted as saying 
that she thought Circle K should 
not be bought blazers. 

Was last weeks article, al- 
though becoming traditional, the 
way you as students want your

Bulldogs Look For Upset 

League Leaders Risk Everything Tomorrow 

DEFENSIVE BACKS Tony Ber, No. 40, and Michael Phillips, No. 25, 
are battling end Steve Gaspard for the launched pigskin. The fresh- 
man Gaspard, whose father played on an undefeated Demon team, 
leads his team with 405 yards in pass receptions. 

by Sports Staff 

A number one team — a homecoming crowd — a possible 
GSC championship — an unblemished 7-0 record — and a wor- 
ried football coach compose the setting for a head-on collision 
between the Southwestern Bulldogs and an undefeated, un- 
tied Demon football team that has had close calls in its two 
most recent outings. 

A win over Southwestern, the team that was picked by 
the experts to walk away with the league title, would not 
only alleviate Coach Jack Clayton's worries, but it could also 
clinch the conference crown for a Northwestern squad that 
was expected to finish in the second division by the same 

If Southwestern should fall, and if Southeastern should 
upset McNeese, regardless of what happens next week, the 
Demons will be mathematically safe, since a McNeese loss to 
Southeastern, along with a NSC win, would give the Cowboys 
two GSC defeats and would put the prize out of their reach. 

Southwestern, having already felt the sting of a circuit 
loss at the hands of Northeast, will, of course, be out of the 
picture should they drop tomorrow's contest with the Demons. 

Reversing the future with McNeese and Southwestern 
triumphs, the Demons would fall from their pinnacle into the 
chaos of a three-way tie with the two preceding teams. This 
would force the Demons to put down Southeastern next week 
in order to even gain a share of the title because McNeese and 
Southwestern clash next week. If the Cowboys and the Lions 
should tie in that final contest, the Demons would still have a 
chance to finish first by coming up with a victory over 

Impossible? That was only the probable. Now if the 
Demons lose both of their remaining games, and if South- 
western should lose one, and if McNeese should lose one, 
Southeastern could force a four-way tie by winning its two 
remaining games with McNeese and Northwestern. 

GSC Guesses 

Our two-for-four showing last week lowered our per- 
centage to .640 for the season, but once again we got the big 
one by picking NSC 17-7. A missed field goal prevented the 
final 14-6 score from being 17-6. 

NORTHWESTERN 24 - Southwestern 10- A gift for 
the alumni. 

McNeese 14 - Southeastern 12 - Cowboys are still hoping. 
Lamar Tech 27 - La. Tech 14 - Tech's better than Tech. 
Northeast 21 - Delta State 14 - Indians have improved. 

by Steve Gunn 

Riding high with a 7-0 record 
and a number one rating by a 
national poll, NSC's football team 
hopes to keep the momentum 
going before a homecoming audi- 
ence tomorrow afternoon against 
the University of Southwestern 

A victory for the Demons 
would clinch at least a share of 
the Gulf States Conference (GSC) 
title while a loss would throw the 
race into a tie. 

USL, an early season favorite 
to walk away with first place in 
the GSC, has met some stumbling 
blocks throughout the year and

has dropped its last two contests 
by close scores. 

Injuries have plagued the Bull- 
dogs for the entire season, and 
tomorrow's game will be no dif- 

Four Missing 

Four of USL's outstanding play- 
ers will miss the game. One of 
these will be quarterback Bill 
Bayard, who has missed most of 
the year with a separated should- 
er. Latest reports on Bayard, the 
Bulldogs top quarterback, reveal 
that the gridder is unable to lift 
his arm above his head. 

Chester Gosnell, a fullback and 
punter, and Brad Hamilton, an 
Ail-American honorable mention 
guard last year, are suffering 
from leg injuries and won't be 
seeing any action tomorrow. 

Gerald Landry, a halfback who 
riddled the Demon defenses a 
year ago, is also out with an 

Taking over the quarterback 
spot from the wounded Bayard, 
Mickey Burgeron has led the Bull- 
dogs for the majority of the 

Burgeron has passed 66 times 
and has completed 32 for 494 
yards. He can be expected to go 
to the air most of the day be- 
cause the Southwestern offensive 
boss has run for only 96 yards. 

George Gros, a halfback is the 
team's best ground gainer with 
300 yards in 71 carries. 

One of the better pass receivers 
for USL is Leonard Kleinpeter, 
who has only made 16 catches, 
but who has carried six of these 

16 catches into paydirt. This 
split end has averaged 25.5 yards 
on every pass that he has pulled 
down from the air. 

Kleinpeter also is a kickoff 
and punt return specialist. 

Passing Duo 

Donald Guidry and Malcolm 
Lewis, NSC's deadly passing duo 
have thrown for 618 yards and 
519 yards in the first seven games. 

Gary Pittman, the Demon's 
leading rusher with 244 yards to 
his credit, is followed by team- 
mates Russ Gielow, a fullback, 
and Neal Prather, a halfback. 

Steve Gaspard leads the squad 
in pass receptions with 405 yards 
for a 15.0 average. Dick Reding 
has made 22 catches for 378 yards 
to earn a 17.2 average. Louis Ri- 
chard and Kenny Callens follow 
Reding and Gaspard. 

All-American Al Dodd has in- 
tercepted eight passes and needs 
only two more to break his all- 
time GSC record of nine. 

McNeese Goes Down 

The Cowboys went down, and 
the Demons went up in the GSC 
standings as Coach Jack Clay- 
ton's crew moved into total pos- 
session of first place by downing 
McNeese 14-6. 

During the first quarter, the 
game was entirely a defensive 
battle with each team managing 
to advance the ball to midfield, 
then having to punt. 

Dodd, suffering from a virus 
and not being able to make a 
practice for an entire week, pro- 
bably prevented a McNeese score 
in the first quarter when he in- 
tercepted a 40-yard bomb right 
above the goal line. Dodd grabbed 
another Cowpoke throw later in 
the game. 

McNeese stunned the Demons 
by taking a 6-0 lead on a 13-yard 
pass from quarterback David

Stunned but not stopped, the

led to the 10 where on the next 
play Pittman hurdled through to 
score. Lewis kicked, and the De- 
mons led 7-6 as the half ended. 

In the latter part of the third 
quarter a high snap from the 
McNeese center went over the 
punter's head, and the "Purple 
and White" had the ball in scor- 
ing position on the McNeese 32. 

With three consecutive runs, 
Pittman, the man of the hour, ran 
the pigskin to the nine. 

Guidry saw end Louis Richard 
at the very back of the end zone, 
and the Demons had another 
touchdown. Lewis kicked, and 
made the final score 14-6.

Intramural Football Season Ends With Other 9 First 

by Bob Ardoin 

Activity in the Intramural Lea- 
gue reached the zenith of inten- 
sity with this week's action fea- 
turing both the finals in touch 
football, and a volleyball tourna- 
ment on Thursday night. 
Football Playoffs 

In order to determine the lea- 
gue champion, the first two teams 
in their respective leagues met on 
November 1 and 3 in playoff 
matches. The four winners in 
this playoff then advanced into 
the final matches held the follow- 
ing week. 

Monday's action found Kappa 
Sigma and Pas Bas Taus battling 
to a scoreless tie. The game final- 
ly was called because of darkness. 
So, in order to alleviate this sit- 
uation, a sudden death playoff 
was set for Tuesday. The question 
was finally settled with Kappa 
Sigma edging out a 6-0 victory. 

The other playoff game Tues- 

day saw the Uncouths walking 
away from Sigma Tau 14-12. 

The third day of playoff action 
found the Other 9 downing the 
Uncouths by a 13-0 score. 

Thursday, the final day of play- 
off action, saw Kappa Sigma bare- 
ly edging PEK by a 6-0 score. 

Now, with the playoff action 
terminated, the stage was set for 
the final week's action in Intra- 
mural touch football for the 1966 

Football Finals 

With playoff action now over, 
the four remaining teams could 
now concentrate on which of 
them would collect the coveted 
first place medal. 

Monday proved to be a warm 
sunny day with a blue cloudless 
sky, and a warm, gentle breeze 
in the teams' favor. In the game 
for first place, the Other 9 edged 
the fraternity brothers from Kap- 
pa Sigma by a slim 7-0 margin. 

The day's action was far from 
over, as the Uncouths and PEK 
still had to vie for third and four- 
th places. In that game, the Un- 
couths toppled PEK by 19-6. 

Following the game, medals 
were distributed to the first and 
second place teams. Points gath- 
ered in the games were added to 
the teams' total thus far this sea- 

Volleyball Tournament 

In keeping with the Intramural 
variety of sports, a Volleyball 
tournament was held Thursday, 
November 3, in the Men's Gym- 

Receiving first place in the 
night games were the Mighty "8". 
The team is composed of Stan 
Slayden, Ronald Dupre, Walter 
Martin, Richie Petersen, 'Steve 
Sangstr, Charles Soileau, Lloyd 
Cates and John Terrell. The team 
garnered 50 points for the vic- 

Placing second in the tourney 
was Sigma Tau, with Who's Who 
no. 1 receiving third. Kappa Al- 
pha came in fourth position. 
Basketball Entries 

The Intramural office urges all 
teams who are interested in play- 
ing in the Intramural Basketball 
League to enter no later than 
November 17. 

Play will commence Monday, 
November 28, after the Thanks- 
giving Holidays. A team is limit- 
ed to 10 members.

Silver Star 

By Steve Gunn 

Duck blood, raw water buffalo, 
rice, cabbage leaves and Viet 
Cong were a large part of the 
diet of Captain Richard Rogers 
during his year-long stay in 
South Viet Nam. 

Rogers, a 1962 graduate of 
Northwestern, was an adviser to 
a South Vietnamese regiment that 
operated out of Bon Me Thuot 
(located in the western-central 
section of South Viet Nam) until 
he returned in June to be award- 
ed the silver star, the third high- 
est military honor available. 

Describing the battle that led 
to the silver star, the tall, slender 
captain illustrated, "We (238 
South Vietnamese troops, an 
American sergeant and Rogers) 
were surrounded by a North Viet- 
namese force which we thought 
to be about three times as large 
as ours." 

The captain hesitated, then 
added, "It turned out that we

Bicyclist Injured 
After Collision 
With VW Bus 

Evan G. Ryder, a freshman at 
Northwestern State College, was 
seriously injured Tuesday after- 
noon when the bicycle he was 
riding collided head-on with a 
Volkswagen bus driven by Grant 
F. Kenner of the Northwestern 
Art" Department faculty. 

Ryder, the son of Mr. and Mrs 
J. T. Ryder, Sr., of Deville, is a 
graduate of Buckeye High School. 
He is majoring in biology at 

The accident occurred on 
Sibley Drive on the college cam- 
pus at about 4 p.m. Observers said 
Ryder lost control of the bicycle 
and swerved into the path of the 
oncoming vehicle. 

Ryder was taken to the 
Natchitoches Parish Hospital and 
was later moved to Doctors' Hos- 
pital in Shreveport. He sustained 
serious head injuries. 

Officials at Doctors' Hospital 
listed Ryder's condition Wednes- 
day as critical.

North Vietnamese regiments or 
approximately 1,500 enemy 
troops. As we were retreating, the 
enemy ambushed us, and we 

Outnumbered badly, Roger's 
unit over-ran the Communists. 
After the conflict had ended, 
over half of the South Vietna- 
mese had either been killed or 
wounded, and later there was an 
enemy body count of over 300. 

However, Rogers estimated that 
many more of the North Vietna- 
mese regulars fell than the body 
count indicated. 

Rogers's advice to the South 
Vietnamese soldiers was probably 
the reason for the battle's succes. 

When asked how long it would 
take to win the war, the silver 
star wearer explained, "There 
are three things that keep a gue- 
rilla war going. There must be a 
cause, help from the inside and

other members of the SGA. 

SGA member Patti Castille 
spoke up in defense of the bud-

quibble over the Current Sauce 
budget," Patti declared, "and the 
people who work on the paper 
deserve every cent they get be- 
cause they work hard for it." 

Danny Gayer, editor of the 
Current Sauce, spoke in behalf of 
the extra scholarships. "In re- 
viewing this budget, I would like 
to say that without the scholar- 
ship I received from the Current 
Sauce, I could not have come to 
college at all," Gayer commented. 
"I think this college needs more

that the people who work in the 
cafeteria have to work a full 30

hours, he would break it down 
for him and let him see for him-

professional caterers are cur- 
rently in charge of all college 
food services at NSC. 

The building itself, designed 
by August Perez of New Orleans, 
consists of three levels. The first 
two are actually "ground floors," 
since the structure is built into 
the hillside and each has an en- 
trance from the ground. 

The first floor will house the 
NSC Post Office, which will begin 
service in the new building imme- 
diately after students return from 
Thanksgiving holidays. 

Also on that floor will be the 
bookstore and a lounge and 
games area, consisting of an 
eight-lane bowling alley with 
automatic pin-setter and ten pool 
tables A barber shop and beauty 
salon complete the first floor. 

An elevated walkway extends 
from the street in front to the 
second floor. This impressive 
span is one of the more unique 
features of the building. 

This second level contains a 
large ballroom measuring 80 by 
80 feet, which will feature adjust- 
able background music as well 
as controlled lighting. 

Another lounge area, along 
with the food services, snack bar, 
music listening room, browsing 
library, and information desk, 
is located here. 

The third floor will consist of 
the student government, the dean 
of men, dean of women, all 
housing offices and offices for 
the purchase of meal tickets and 
payment of room and board. 

There will also be ten small 
conference rooms for the use of 
various activities of campus 

Running under the elevated 
walkway and directly in front 
of the building will be a drive- 
way which is to be completed in 
the near future. 

Parking space will be limited, 
with only a small lot for 50 cars 
at the northwest corner of the 
building, but this problem will 
be offset somewhat by the con- 
struction of the large parking 
area in front of Caddo Hall.

patio is presently being land-

'riday, November 18, 1966 



Recently, a certain girl on cam- 
pus was ridiculed because her 
attire differed from that worn by 
the typical coed. This is only a 
slight illustration of society's ag- 
gression toward anyone who 
dares to be different. This dis- 
paragement is not only concerned 
with the manner in which one 
dresses, but every other aspect 
of his being as well. 

Why is it delirious to desire a 
way of life delightfully different 
from society's impeccable stand- 
ard? Why must everyone adhere 
to one mode of conduct, one set 
of rules? Why can we not digress 
from the ordinary without being 
considered demented? The indi- 
vidual is too concerned with the 
performance of the masses. The 
personal qualities and character- 
istics of a single person are 
smothered in his desperate at- 
tempt to conform. He doesn't 
want to be stereotyped as a single 
personality weighed for his own 
value. This would be adverse as 

he is doubtful of his ability to 
succeed unassisted by his col- 
leagues. Yet, he has not develop- 
ed these attitudes without justifi- 
cation. He entered the world with 
a set of attributes that were sole- 
ly his own; but, he soon learned 
that society chastises anyone who 
dares to deviate from the custom- 
ary form of behavior. He soon 
learned how he was supposed to 
think, how he was supposed to 
act and before long it became a 
habit, a habit which soon per- 
meated his whole personality. 
As a result, the world lost an 
array of talents and ideas that 
were never given the opportunity 
to develop There is not a single 
person living who does not pos- 
sess some capacity that is scream- 
ing for expression. This is not a 
bid for everyone to don their 
black attire and drag out the 
poetry books. It is merely a plea 
for prevention — preservation of 
all those ideas and fantasies that 
make you distinctly you.

brated nationwide as American Education Week. 

'Education Adds Up' Says SLTA 

It began with a proclamation 
and ended with an open house. 
This is the way Northwestern 
SLTA'ers observed American Ed- 
ucation Week (Nov. 6-13). 

The week was officially pro- 
claimed by Natchitoches Mayor 
Ray Scott, and activities during 
the observance have included 
poster displays utilizing comic 
strip characters, radio publicity, 
newspaper coverage and group 


American Education Week orig- 
inated in 1921 to call the atten- 
tion of the public to the import- 
ance of education in a democracy 
and to remind the common man 
of our society that good schools 
are his responsibility. The week 
still serves today as a vital stim- 
ulant for support of our educa- 
tion system. 

Local civic clubs and ministers 

were urged to stress the value of 
education to their respective 
groups and to make the general 
public more aware of the impor- 
tant role education plays in mod- 
ern society 

An open house held in Warren 
Easton Conference Room 209 
Thursday afternoon closed the 
week with a final reminder that 
"Education Adds Up."

How nice! The television show 
is a success; and its Babbitty, 
bourgeois creators (a man-wife 
writing team) lean back, the 
better to savor an exquisite mo- 
ment of egocentricity. 

Amid the congratulations of 
colleagues and superiors, an in- 
vitation for a nightcap is exten- 
ded to the couple. "Thanks, but 
no thanks," the wife replies. "We 
have a home, and that's where 
we're going." 

They whiz through deserted 
streets in a natty Lincoln Con- 
tinental, and finally reach their 
little abode. Now, there is time 
for that highball and a midnight 
chat with Grandmother. 

Suddenly, an expression of 
dismay crosses the wife's norm- 
ally blank visage as she remem- 
bers that she is a mother. 

"Where is my son?" she quer- 
ies. "He certainly shouldn't be 
out this late on a school night." 

Grandma, a plucky old girl who 
does crossword puzzles, responds. 

"Now Dear, you wouldn't want 
me to fink out on him, would 

"Don't worry, Honey," says her 
aggressive, successful husband. 
"You know how kids are." 

Thus, with a state of equanimity 
reestablished, Mom, Dad, and 
Grandma settle down to discuss 
the latest triumph. Alas, their 
rapprochement with themselves 
and the world is short lived; for 
the telephone peals ominously. 

It is headquarters calling to 
say that Junior and some fellow 
revelers have become more ram- 
bunctious than the law allows; 
and then, thus, spend the night 
in jail. 

Mother moans, her anguished 
countenance leading us to be- 
lieve that she suffers from indi- 
gestion. Father looks indignant 
and makes protesting sounds. 
"The Restless Ones" is now in 
full swing.

Nobody will dispute— surely not I— that raising children 
is a task which requires full time and awesome skills. 
Nonetheless, a recent nationwide survey has revealed a 
startling fact: mothers who go back to work after their 
children are safely through the early years are notably 
happier, better adjusted, and more fulfilled than mothers 
who simply remain housewives. Moreover— and mark this 
well— the children of such working mothers are themselves 
happier, better adjusted, and more fulfilled! 

All very well, you say, but what's it got to do with you? 
Isn't it obvious ? If you are underachieving at college, get 
your mother a job. 

What kind of job? Well sir, your mother is probably 
between 35 and 50 years of age, so certain occupations 
must immediately be ruled out. Logging, for example. Or 
whaling. Or carhopping. 

But don't despair. There are other kinds of jobs— not 
many, to be sure, but some. However, you must not stick 
Mom in just any old job. You must remember that after 
the excitement of raising you, she would be bored to tears 
as a file clerk, for instance, or as a dolman. (A dolman, as 
we all know, is someone who brings handf uls of water to 
track layers. With the recent invention of the pail, dolmen 
are gradually falling into technological unemployment.) 

But I digress. I was saying, find Mom a job worthy of 
her talents, something challenging that uses her vast wis- 
dom and experience but, at the same time, is not too hard 
on her obsolescing tissues. That's what Walter Sigafoos 
did, and the results were brilliantly successful. 

Walter, a sophomore at the Upper Maryland College of 
Wickei-work and Belles Lettres, majoring in raffia, ap- 
proached the problem scientifically. First he asked himself 
what his mother did best. Well sir, what she did best was 
to keep hollering, "Dress warm, Walter!" 

At first glance this seemed a skill not widely in demand, 
but Walter was not discouraged. He sent out hundreds of 
inquiries and today, I am pleased to report, his mother is 
happily employed as wardrobe mistress for the Montreal 

Another fortunate venture was that of Frank C. Grans- 
mire, a junior at the Oregon State Conservatory of Music 
and Optometry, majoring in sties. Frank, like Walter, did 
a survey in depth of his mother's talents. Chief among 
them, he found, was her ability to make a roast of beef 
feed the whole family for three days. So, naturally, Frank 
got her a job at the Museum of Natural History. 

What has one to do with the other, you ask? Isn't it 
obvious? Anyone who can stretch ribs like that belongs in

NSC Marching Band Ends '66 Season 
Tomorrow Night; Plan For Festival 

Tomorrow's Southeastern-NSC 
game marks the end of a sparkl- 
ing football season for the Demon 
Marching Band. The percision 
marching musicians have per 
formed at all Demon games played 
in the NSC stadium and in Pen- 
sacola, Fla., Lake Charles and 
Shreveport at the State Fair 

After this week, Demon band 
members will no longer drill and 

practice for pre-game and half- 
time shows but will concentrate 
on rehearsals for the Christmas 
concert to be given following the 
annual Natchitoches Christmas 
parade, Dec. 3. 

Auditions are currently being 
held for the concert band, accord- 
ing to band director Robert 
Smith. The band will perform 
this Spring.

months learning the tongue of 
the natives. 

"I knew what to expect when I 
got there," he asserted. 

Even so, language still pre-

dealing with the Montagnards, a 
primitive people of the Vietna-

"There are 37 tribes of Mon- 
tagnarns, and each tribe speaks a 
different dialect. Most of these 
people never travel more than 
ten miles from where they were 
born," Rogers affirmed. 

In order to keep these people 
amicable, Rogers had to mix with 
them socially and this included 
eating what they ate. The menu 
consisted mostly of rice, cabbage 
leaves, chickens, ducks, and on 
special occasions, raw water buf- 
falo meat. 

"When they ate an animal such 
as a duck," the captain an- 
nounced, "they would eat every-

brain, and would often drink the

What a surprise! Rock Hudson, 
perennially cool and the smooth- 
est matinee idol since Valentino, 
has made a flick in which there 
is no sign of Doris (How to Re-

The film is "Seconds," a hair-

their youth."

by far the best role I have seen 
Mr. Hudson in; he makes a fas-

in theme, with an ending of un-

Lions After Demons 

McNeese Could Tie 

GSC Crown To Be Decided Tomorrow Night 

Quarterbacks Go 20 For 22 On Passes 
As Southwestern Falls At Homecoming 

"Great, just great!" were the 
words of defensive back David 
Smith only moments after the 
Demons had clinched a tie for 
the conference championship with 
a 21-8 whipping of Southwestern. 

In order to continue to feel 
great, the undefeated gridders 
must pass one more obstacle on 
the course, and that obstacle is 
the Southeastern Lions, an up- 
and-down team with a 3-5 record 
so far this year. 

There certainly won't be any 
substitute for victory in tomor- 
row night's meeting. A loss 
could throw the Demons into a 
tie with McNeese for the number 
one position in the Gulf States 
Conference (GSC). 

A defeat could also knock the 
Demons out of a possible entry 
into the NAIA playoffs as well as 
ruin their perfect record. 

"A decision on post-season acti- 
vity will be made after the South- 
eastern game," Coach Jack Clay- 
ton acknowledged, "and not until 
that time." 

If the Demons take part in any 
post-season bowls or playoffs, 
they aren't thinking about it now, 
because Southeastern is very cap- 
able of pulling the upset of the 
year as is indicated by their fine 

To start with, they have pro- 
bably the best passer in the GSC 
in Bobby Cotten, who has thrown 
151 passes and completed 71 for 
923 yards and four touchdowns. 

But Cotten does have one weak- 
ness, and that's interceptions. Of 
the 151 tosses, he has had 12 
picked off by defenders. 

On the other end of the foot- 


ball is Duane Floyd, one of the 
better receivers in the loop. Floyd 
has made 33 catches for 410 yards 
and two touchdowns. 

Halfback Charles Whitney, 
their leading scorer with 40 
points, is the best man in the 
Lion's ground game. He has car- 
ried the pigskin 87 times for 418 
yards for an average of 4.8 yards 
per run. 

Johnny O'Neal, the Lion's Al 
Dodd, has returned punts for a 
10.1 average and kickoffs for a 
17.5 average. 

Their punter is Wayne Souther- 
land, who has booted on 51 dif- 
ferent occasions for a 39.9 yards 

In the line, Southeastern is 
very respectable. Such standouts 
as Billy Andrews, Fred Gary and 
Henry Powell are known for their 
ability throughout the conference. 

Andrews is a 6'1", 210 pound 
linebacker who has made the All- 
GSC team for the last two years. 

Gary is a 6'0", 200 pound sen- 
ior guard, and last but not least 
is Powell, a 6'2", 270 pound 
tackle. Powell is a monster, not 
a monster man on defense! 

The Lions will be running 
from a "Wing T" type offense 
that provides for a lot of passing 
and sweeping plays. 

And a lot of passing especially! 
In eight games the Lions have put 
the ball in the air 170 times. This 
means that they throw about 21 
passes per contest. 

Last year's battle between the 
Demons and the Lions might be 
a good indication of what to ex- 
pect tomorrow night. The score 
was 38-22 in favor of the Demons. 


After recovering a fumble in 
Demon territory early in the 
game, Southwestern almost scored 
on their first play from scrimm- 
age when a Bulldog receiver jug- 
gled a bomb from quarterback 
Mickey Burgeron at the NSC 10 
yard line. 

The Demon's first tally came in 
the first quarter when they got a 
59-yard march to the endzone 

Key runs by Neal Prather and 
Gary Pittman advanced the ball 
deep into enemy territory. Then 
quarterback Don Guidry found 
end Dick Reding with a pass at 
the Bulldog 13. Guidry put the 
icing on the cake when he shot 
a scoring pass to Pittman from 
the two. Malcolm Lewis kicked 
and the score was 7-0 when the 
first fourth of the game came to 
an end. 

Passes from Lewis to Russ 
Gielow, Ken Callens and Steve 
Gaspard set up another Demon 
touchdown in the last seconds of 
the first half. Lewis made it over 
from the one just in time for it to 
count. As the half ended, NSC 
led 14-0. 

The last score for the "Purple 
and White" came in the fourth 
quarter when Lewis hit Steve 
Gaspard on a six-yard toss into 

Southwestern's only score came 
in the fourth period also. It came 
as a result of fullback Russ Gie- 
low's fumble on NSC's 19. Ber- 
geron quickly took charge and 
threw to Bill Edney at the five. 
Two plays later Dickey Mart ran 
through an opening for the six 

Hoping to narrow the point 
gap, Bergeron hit Leonard Klein- 
peter with a pass for two points. 

Guidry and Lewis combined for 
an amazing 20 completions in 22 
atempts, and Al Dodd intercepted 
his ninth pass of the year tying 
his own GSC record. 

McNeese Stays Alive As Lions Lose; 
Northeast Wins, La. Tech Defeated 

As the football season draws 
to a close, and as the league 
teams secure their places in the 
standings, it appears as though 
the GSC race will be another 
tight, down-to-the-wire battle. 

This past weekend, the Demons 
clinched at least a tie for the top 
honor by crushing Southwestern. 
McNeese kept their title hopes 
alive by routing Southeastern. 
Northeast battled to a win over 
Delta State as Louisiana Tech 
sank further into the depths of 
oblivion by losing to Lamar Tech. 

Lamar Tech 31 La. Tech 16 

The Demon's friendly enemy 
almost pulled an upset in this 

one. Lamar Tech had to score 
three times in the second half to 
bring home a victory. 

Northeast 14 Delta State 10 
Northeast managed a fourth 
quarter score which enabled them 
to reap a come from behind vic- 
tory over Delta State. The win 
elevated the Tribe's season mark 
to 6-3 which is their best in eight 

McNeese 28 Southeastern 12 

The Cowboys were ushered into 
second place in the GSC standings 
by beating Southeastern. The win 
gave McNeese a 3-1 conference 
record, while Southeastern was 
left with 

HALFBACK GARY PITTMAN, No. 45, runs through a human mass during the thick of the battle with 
the Southwestern Bulldogs. Pittman caught a pass from quarterback Don Guidry to put the Demons

Intramural Theme Moves Westward 
With Rodeo, Also Ping-Pong Test 

a 1-3 mark in league 

By Bob Ardoin 

The sports activities of the In- 
tramural League continued with 
ping-pong and rodeo battles this 
past week. 

The first event on tap was the 
ping-pong tournament held in the 
Student Center on Thursday 
night November 10 at 6:30. 

Competition was held on an 
individual basis with forty reg- 
istered entries. 

Placing first in the tournament 
was Larry Blackman of the Bap- 
tist Student Union. Blackman 
compiled a total of 25 points. 

Second place was taken by Jos- 
eph Cheng who collected fifteen 
total points. 

Third and fourth places were 
given to John Horn of the Baptist 
Student Union and Mike West- 
moreland of Sigma Tau who had 
ten and five points respectively. 


Northwestern students kept in 
trend with the old wild, wild 
west this past week as they donn- 
ed their cowboy hats, boots and 
other western outfits to partici- 
pate in the Annual Intramural 

In the bareback division, Terry 
Sharband placed first with 26 
points. Next was Lonnie Hughes, 
and coming in third was Robert 

The "Goose Scramble" found 
the Rodeo Club gaining top hon- 
ors with a 20.0 time. They were 
followed by Delta Zeta with 25.0. 
Third position was taken by Tri 
Sigma with a 25.2. 

The East Wing of the New 
Dorm garned top place in the 
wild horse race with a 26.1 time. 
Demeter came in second with a 

In the Sadie Hawkins race, the 
Canterbury Club proved to be the 
most fleet-footed group as they 
won first with 14.7 seconds. The 
PEM Club was next with 20.0, and 
was followed by Sigma Kappa 
with 25.0. 

"Goat-Sacking" was sewed up 
by the Canterbury Club with a 
33.0 time. The PEM Club was 
second with 35.0, and Delta Zeta 

was third with 45.8. 

Individuals in bull riding 
accumulated a great number of 
points for their sponsors also. 

Jerry Kemp scored 42 points for 
Demeter. Bill Salem was next 
with 25 for Kappa Sigma. Al Tre- 
cost was third with seven. 

By Sports Staff 

"We're number one! We're number one!" they shouted 
at Homecoming. And the only team in the GSC that might 
doubt this is Southeastern, the only league team that hasn't 
met NSC. 

Southeastern is now in a torrid race for the cellar with 
La. Tech and Northeast, and it's unlikely that they will be 
successful when they meet the number one team in the nation 
tomorrow night. 

But however unlikely an upset may be, a victory is not 
a certainty. One sports analysist recently advised the Current 
Sauce sports staff that this game will be like the Mets playing 
the Dodgers in the last week of the pennant race. One has 
nothing to lose, and the other has everything to lose. 

A victory would probably mean that the Demons would 
wind up in the NAIA playoffs. This could also mean that the 
Southeastern game won't be the last or the even the next to 
last game of the season. If the number one team is victorious 
tomorrow night, and if they are invited to the NAIA playoffs, 
a flip of the coin or the weather will decide the location of 
the Demon's first playoff contest. The second postseason game 
would be played in Tulsa, Okla., Dec. 10, to decide the NAIA 
national champion. An impressive victory against the Lions 
would make it difficult to keep the Demons out of the play- 
offs. After all, they are the number one team. 

GSC Guesses 

Last week, four correct guesses raised our .640 per- 
centage to .689. We hate to keep saying this but once again 
we hit the home team's score on the nose. Our prediction was 
24-10, and we almost said 21-8 but changed the guess at the 
last moment. Anyway, we've never missed a prediction on 
a Demon game this year! 

NORTHWESTERN 42 - Southeastern 14 - Look for a high 
scoring offensive duel. 

Northeast 28 - La. Tech 21 - A real close one. 

McNeese 17 - Southwestern 15 - Cowboys are still hop- 
ing for a share of the title.

Hildebrand Views Coming Season 

By Steve Gunn 

"We are going to have to play 
better than last year's team if we 
equal their 18-7 record this year," 
says an overly pessimistic basket- 
ball coach named Tynes Hilde- 

"There's not a team on our 
schedule that we're sure that we 
can beat. Last year, I foresaw a 
few easy games, but this year it's 
different. Everybody's good!" Hil- 
debrand remarked in a pre season 

"You take the Gulf States Con-

we had a 9-3 record When league

Pigskin Team Given First Once More; 
NAIA Puts Out Semifinal Poll 

Football fans partial to the De- 
mons can still claim that their 
team is the number one small 
college team in the nation. 

Yes, that's right, the North- 
western Demons were still rated 
as the top team for the second 
week in a row in the NAIA foot- 
ball standings. 

This rating, which incidentally 
was the semi-final regular season 
poll taken by the NAIA, found the 
Demons standing at the highest 
pinnacle, gathering eight first 
place votes out of a possible 

Another poll will be taken after 
the playoffs. That poll will deter- 
mine the NAIA national champ- 
ion for 1966. 

At press time the future of the 
Demons is uncertain. That is, 
they still have one game to com- 
plete, and whether they choose 
to go to a bowl game, enter the 
national playoffs, or go else- 
where is a mystery to students, 
loyal fans, and even to Coach 
Clayton and the team.

so we're just going to have to dig

men to fill the gap," the Demon 
tutor announced with a frown. 

Besides All-GSCers David Clark 
a 6' 3" senior forward, and Jim 
Wyatt, a 6' 6" soph center, Wayne 
Lee, Peter Gray, Bill Ragland, 
Jerry MacLaurin and Skeeter 
Henry were listed as possible 
starters by Hildebrand. 

"Who knows," Hildebrand quip- 
ped with a straight face, "five 
freshmen might take the floor 
Dec. 1 when the season opens 
with Delta State. 

"I think, the team as a whole 
is in better condition than we 
were 365 days ago at this time, 
even though a new conference 
ruling prohibited practices until 
Oct. 15," the coach growled. 

"But the players are a long way 
from being ready to play a 
game," he added, "and that's why 
the practice sessions have been 
running over two hours. Long 
and rugged workouts are neces- 
sary and I believe in them," Hil- 
debrand affirmed. 

When asked about strategy and 
tactics, the Demon basketball 
coach indicated that he plans to 
use everything from a man-to-man 
press to a tight zone defense in 
stopping the opposition. 

As for the offense, there's only- 
one that he plans to use, and: 
that's the one that scores more 
points than the opposition.

'Restless Ones'—

characterizations, the lack of 
style and taste, if only there were 
a few moments of sincerity in 
this cliche-ridden melodrama. 

The actors do not come across 
as real people with honest-to- 
goodness problems; they're mere- 
ly stereotypes of people whose 
problems are contrived. 

Mom and Dad are a philistine 
duo so concerned with career and 
social life that they haven't time 
for their child. 

Junior, a poor little rich boy, 
has had everything he could possi- 
bly want, except parental love 
and guidance. April, his wicked 
consort, is an overweight seduct- 
ress of, perhaps, 17 who owes her 
licentiousness to an alcoholic 

In the final scene, everyone 
attends a Billy Graham rally 
(except April, who has slashed 
her wrists and is thus indisposed). 
An inspiring hymn rings through 
the air. Strong men weep; women 

Our young hero, realizing that 
he must change his sordid way of 
life, stands up to be saved. It 
should be so simple! 

In regards to the simplicity, 
it is there in over-abundant por- 
tions, lending an air of incredi- 
bility to the proceedings. The plot 
is so simple it's hardly worth 
mentioning: small child placed 
at the door of convent with a 
note is reared by nuns and suf- 
fers the trauma of having to leave 
her God-nest when she falls in 

But since the plot is so much 
of an old hat, it would seem that 
something should emerge from 
this "classic" of the theatre that 
would make it worthwhile. Per- 
haps, it could be the authenticity 
that Underhill speaks of in his 
words to the director. If the idea 
that nuns are almost totally ori- 
ented, in everything they do, to 
their God and the idea they're 
women and sometimes unpredict- 
able are authentic insights into 
the life of the convent, then the 
play succeeds on his count. But 
there is nothing in the entire play 
that is enlightening in the sense 
that it is a new pearl of wisdom 
to the fairly educated person. 

What, then, is the purpose of 
this song of syrup? And why did 
it appear on the theatre schedule 
of a college? Even the emotion 
it aims to purge comes across like 
a seat-squirming, one-note jazz 

But despite the script, there 
were a few good points about the 
performance that need mention- 
ing. The shining success of the 
show has to be the set, created 
and executed by Frank Magers, 
assistant professor of speech and 
technical director for all the pro- 

The blend of tranquility a- 
chieved by the lighting and the 

set are almost worth a trip to the 
show in themselves. From the 
magnificent iron gates to the 
grey, brick effect on the walls to 
the choice of furniture, the set is 
letter perfect for this kind of 

And then there were a few 
really good stage pictures as a 
result of Dr. Edna West's block- 
ing, but they were ruined most 
of the time by terribly awkward 
entrances and exits. 

Mrs. Judy Causey as Sister Jo- 
anna of the Cross gave her best 
to a poor role and emerged some- 
what less of a caricature than the 
rest of the cast. Moments in the 
job done by Susie Hames were 
effective enough, especially the 
last speech, but Miss Hames' pac- 
ing and pausing need a lot of 

As the Mother Prioress of the 
"bevy," Susie Chancey turned in 
a fair performance, delivering her 
lines with the same clear voice in 
Act I as (18 years later) in Act H. 
This was a definite fault of the 
whole cast and make-up was no 
aid. Even from the middle of the 
auditorium, the best make-up 
jobs were washed out beyond 

Barbara Gresham and Mary 
Ellen Davis lent moments of vi- 
tality to a show that literally died 
throughout and at the ends,es- 
pecially, of both acts. 

Dorothy Martin (Teresa, the 
foundling) had a chance to add a 
little variety to the show in the 
second act, but she never quite 
separated herself from an accent 
that's definitely Shreveport, and, 
if you'll excuse my Higgins, pro- 
bably Fair Park High. Not apro- 
pos at all for a convent in Spain

Friday, December 2, 1966 


Pam Rushing, math education 
major of Natchitoches, was 
chosen 1967 Lady of the Bracelet 
from 14 contestants in the Fine 
Arts Auditorium Thursday night 
in the annual Lady of the Bra- 
celet Pageant, sponsored by the 

Miss Rushing will serve for her 
second consecutive year. As first 
runner-up in the 1966 pageant, 
Miss Rushing won the title when 
the winner, Mrs. Larry Fisher, 

Elizabeth Chapman, nursing 
major of Bunkie, was chosen first 
runner-up. Second runner-up was 
Cecilia Shea, English major of 
Shreveport, who is now the 
reigning Miss Shreveport. 

Chosen as third and fourth 
runners-up were Sue Peterson, 
Norfolk, Va., education major, 
and Connie Mattox, Bossier City 
sociology major. 

The five finalists were chosen 
from ratings in three categories? 
beauty, poise and talent; and the 
pageant was divided into three 
main events: swimsuit compe- 
tition, talent, and evening gown 
competition. Cecilia Shea was 
the top winner in the swimsuit 
competition, and Pam Rushing, 
playing the organ while singing 
"Misty," won the talent division. 

Wayne Meachum, acting as 
master of ceremonies, enter- 
tained the audience with songs 
and amusing banter between 
events. The "Cackles," a girls' 
singing group, also entertained 
with group songs and duets with 
Mr. Meachum. 

Miss Rushing was awarded a 
trophy, roses, and the traditional 
bracelet, which she will keep for 
one year.

Special Meeting Held 

'Potpourri' Also Queried 

SGA Reverses Decision on s Sauce Budget 

by Alice Anne Conner 

Meeting for the first time in 
their plush, gold-carpeted room 
in the new Student Union, the 
NSC Student Government As- 
sociation reversed their previous 
decision to accept the Current 
Sauce budget for the school year. 

The new motion was brought 
about by Jerry Kemp's question 
in the Nov. 21 meeting concern- 
ing the job scholarships. 

David Faraldo, vice president 
of the SGA, had objected to por- 
tions of the budget on the 
grounds that they weren't consti- 
tutionally valid. He also said that 
he had been misquoted in the 
last story in the Current Sauce 
which said he changed his mind 
about the constitutional question. 

Faraldo said he felt as strongly 
as ever about his convictions on 
the matter. "I did not change my 
mind," he asserted. 

It was explained to Kemp and 
other members of the SGA that 
the "scholarships," other than 
those given to the editor, associ- 
ate editor and business manager 
of the Current Sauce, were, in 
reality, work grants. 

Faraldo's question centered on 
the form in which the scholar- 

ship and work grants were set up 
in the budget report. The budget 
showed scholarships being paid 
monthly for nine months, includ- 
ing summer payments. 

Dean Dudley Fulton, SGA fac- 
ulty advisor, told the group that 
there was, indeed a discrepency 
in the budget-that in reality, ten 
payments for scholarships during 
the year were paid out. But he 
also said that questions on the 
schools budgets should have been 
discussed and worked out by the 
SGA's own budget committee, 
headed by Scotty Maxwell, trea- 
surer of the SGA, before being 
presented to the SGA as a whole. 

Maxwell said that he had not 
seen the budgets before their sub- 

Dennis Newberry moved to 
vote on the Current Sauce budget 
and the group voted not to accept 
it as presented. 

Maxwell then called for a meet- 
ing of the budget committee the 
following evening to work out the 

Current Sauce and Popourri 
representatives were asked to 
attend the meeting of the budget 

Earl Coulon, advisor to both 

publications; Dwight Connelly, 
technical advisor of the Current 
Sauce, and Gilbert Stroud, busi- 
ness manager of the Sauce, were 
on hand at the special meeting. 

Questions on the Sauce Budget 
were ironed out and, in the final 
offering, the Sauce budget was in- 
creased a little over $100. 

Maxwell asked Mr. Coulon to 
have the business manager of the 
Potpourii make a fairly detailed 
list of expenses. Faraldo had 
questions on the amount of 
money estimated on the Lady of 
the Bracelet Pagent, the Pot- 
pourri Ball and miscellaneous 

In other action taken by the 
council during the Nov., 28 meet- 
ing, Kenny Baker, public relations 
chairman, announced that the 
SGA Docket was being printed 
and would be distributed to the 
students for the first time this 

The Docket is an SGA news- 
letter which will publicize the 
activities of the group. Baker re- 
ported that the cost of the letter 
would be $26 per issue plus $4 for 
any cuts (pictures) used. 

The problem of how to get 
more students to take an interest 

Christmas Festival 
Activities Schedule 

and vote in NSC elections was 
discussed after Gary Foster an- 
nounced plans for the Mr. and 
Miss NSC election. 

Suggestions for increased sup- 
port by students included making 
more places available for students 
to go and vote, passing out more 
pamphlets, and making large 
signs to place at strategic points 
on campus. 

Freshman associate Danny 
Hammet suggested that the PA 
system in the student union and 
cafeterias be used. It was report- 
ed, however, that Mr. Paul Key- 
ser, electronic technician, said 
using the PA system would be 
too complicated and involved for 
what it was worth. 

Dean Fulton asked if anyone 
ever read the little pamphlets 
which were sent out telling of 
coming events. 

Jeannie Kirk, another frehman 
associate said that "the students 
don't pay any attention to those 
things." She pointed tout that 
students were swamped with lit- 
erature from almost every organi- 
zation on campus and didn't know 
which to read.

Nov. 21 and 28, may be read on

"FINISHING UP A BUSY SEASON. . .The Northwestern 
Cheerleaders are (standing, left to right) Dale Magee, 
Stan Parham, Rusty Bevil, Larry Rivers, (kneeling) Patti 
Doucet, Judy Cole, Bill Nolan, Vicki Todd, and Lydia 

Cheering Them On 

There were 10,000 or so fans here for home- 
coming and they didn't need much direction as to 
whom they should cheer for, but it wasn't always 
like that. Even at the beginning of this season, 
there were quite a few skeptics in the armchair 
quarterback set who were waiting 'til Tech or wait- 
ing for some other opponent of the team that 
would be their downfall. 

But throughout the season, there was one group 
of students who knew where the Demons were 
headed and let everyone know about it. They are 
our cheerleaders who contributed their time and 
often their voices to the background roars that 
underline and emphasize the tones of any exciting 
football game. 

Cartwheeling up and down the sidelines, danc- 
ing to every victory touchdown of the electrifying 
Demon football team, this year's cheerleaders 
proved themselves capable and more thorough 
every minute of the season. 

Their spirit was optimistic through the most 
dubitable moments, but such moments were few 
with the precision and quality of this year's team. 

It isn't often that cheerleaders are patted on 
the back. Usually, they are berated for their efforts 
simply because their task is sometimes near im- 
possible. To motivate a roar from football fans is 
not an easy thing to do, but this year's set of yell 
leaders have done it consistently and effectively 
throughout the season. 

Our Championship Team 

For one of the finest seasons in the records of 
Northwestern football, we commend every member 
of the champion football team with the brand of 
pride they have incorporated into our institution 
by their sportsmanship, determination, and top 
flight loyalty to a job that took many grueling 
hours on the practice field when no one was in the 
stands to cheer. 

To Coach Jack Clayton and everyone involved 
in this season's perfect performance, we have no- 
thing but admiration and respect of the highest de- 
gree imaginable. They have put the name of this 
college in newspapers and on the radio and tele- 
vision stations of the entire country. 

The full merit of their success cannot be meas- 
ured immediately. It will perpetrate into the spirit 
of next year's football team and many to come. It 
will shade the memories of 1966 at Northwestern 
State College for everyone there then. 

Their comeback performance in the season's 
finale is a lasting reminder of the champions they 
truly are. But, even more, it is a perfect example of 
the kind of spirit that should pervade every atmos- 
phere of competition — on the athletic field and in 
the classroom. 

Congratulations again to the excellent 1966 
Northwestern State College football team.

Appreciation For 
Campus Groups 

Dear Editor: 

Thanksgiving holidays are over 
and so is the 1966 football season, 
the most successful since 1939. 

Before we settle down to plann- 
ing for the upcoming Christmas 
holidays, a few more "thanks" 
are in order. 

All should thank and commend 
highly the performances of the 
Northwestern State Band and the 
Black Knights. We sometimes for- 
get the many hours of prepara- 
tion each group spends for the 
few moments they perform. Both 
groups have performed well and 
have won the plaudits of their 
audiences. They are excellent rep- 
resentatives of the college wher- 
ever they are called upon to 

School spirit leader Mike Miller 
and his co-workers are also to be 
commended for their successful 
efforts in maintaining a high 
level of active and enthusiastic 
support during the football sea- 
son. It is expected that this will 
continue throughout the college 

The work of our college service 
groups should also be recog- 
nized. Representatives of Purple 
Jackets, Blue Key and Circle K 
have been always ready to serve 
when needed throughout the fall 
semester programs, lending a 
hand wherever they were needed. 

To all, I believe, there is need 
for a "thank you" and "job well

TV On Campus 
Moves Forward 
With Video Tape 

Northwestern, a pioneer in ed- 
ucational television in Louisiana, 
has put into operation a new vid- 
eo-tape recorder purchased with 
$54,000 in state and federal funds. 

Paul H. Keyser, educational 
electronics technician, said the 
machine, an RCA TR4B quadru- 
plex video-tape recorder, is the 
only one of its kind in any college 
in the state. 

Northwestern, engaged in a tel- 
evision pilot study for the state, 
has one of the most extensive 
closed circuit educational tele- 
vision systems in the nation. 

Kyser said the addition of the 
video-tape machine would allow 
instructors to tape programs for 
delayed use of for repeated show- 
ings. The machine is also equipp- 
ed with instantaneous playback. 

Northwestern started educa- 
tional television in 1961. In the 
past, material was presented live 
or on film. 

The recorder will make it pos- 
sible for the school to rent tapes 
from other sources or to record 
material which may also be rent- 
ed or exchanged with other in- 
stitutions. The machine is equipp- 
ed to use commercial television 
material, and, with modifications, 
can be converted to color. 

The poll was undertaken to de- 
termine student attitudes toward 
the Peace Corps and other public 
affairs issues, such as the Viet- 
nam war, civil rights and the War 
on Poverty. 

The Peace Corps was judged 
the most successful American ef- 
fort abroad in terms of not only 
promoting a better "image," but 
of improving the well-being of 
foreign peoples. 

"It is clear," the report says, 
"that if the Peace Corps is to 
widen and intensify its appeal it 
must convince many seniors that 
two years in the Peace Corps is 
relevant to their future career." 

What these students want, the 
Harris survey concludes, is "to be 
convinced that they would be 
sought after when they returned, 
that they would not lose seniority 
in our highly competitive society 
as the result of an idealistic hia- 
tus, however personally reward-

Mr. Joe Carol Kirkpatrick, insurance 
agent, presented the possible benefits 
of the SGA establishing a Code of 
Ethics for insurance salesmen on our

such an act would serve to protect our 
students from evils of "bird-dogging." 
He also urged students to keep ap- 
pointments they set. After a lengthy 
discussion by the council, Fulton took 
the floor to say that we should be 
aware of the importance of insurance 
to seniors and their families. Also he 
suggested that we might help to guard 
against turning young people against 
insurance altogether.

to the student welfare committee to 
interview companies to see their sales 
policies. Faraldo seconded. Motion car-

announced that the vending machine 
service is "really going to be fine'* 
upon completion.

fice. Faraldo moved that Maxwell be 
reprimanded to deliver these state- 
ments personally. Seconded by Daye. 
Motion carried. 

Faraldo questioned the Current Sauce 
budget item of $35.31 for a circulation 
manager, and he moved that the Cur- 
rent Sauce allow the Black Knights to 
stuff papers to help raise money to go

In Historic Natchitoches 

Campus Groups Prepare 

By Jerry Pierce 

Steeped in history and rich in 
antique charm, the city of Natchi- 
toches throws open its arms on 
Dec. 3 to thousands of visitors 
from throughout the nation. 

Some 50,000 people annually

For the youngsters, it's a 
month-long Christmas day, begin- 
ning with the turning on of the 
city's Christmas lights and con- 
tinuing through the holiday period 
until the decorations are packed 
away until next year. 

Selected as the theme for this 
year's festival is "A Song in Our 
Hearts at Christmas." The theme

Key Club Hears 
Quintet Perform 

The Northwestern State College 
Woodwind Quintet, under the di- 
rection of Dr. Joseph B. Carlucci, 
head of the NSC Music Depart- 
ment, presented a musical pro- 
gram for the installation banquet 
of the Shreveport Kiwanis Club, 
Cedargrove Branch, on Tuesday 
evening, Nov. 29. 

Members of the Quintet are 
Barbara Willis, flute, Virginia 
Nugier, oboe, Glen Welman, 
French horn, Janet Moon, bas- 
soon, and David Butler, clarinet. 
All are music majors at North- 
western. Willis, a freshman, 
Moon, a sophomore, and Butler, 

will be carried out in all of the 
festivities, which begin in early 
morning and continue until the 
city bursts into a sea of color 
shortly after dusk. 

Using tradition and history as 
a foundation, the citizens of 
Natchitoches and students at 
Northwestern pour more time, 
money and energy into the festi- 
val each Christmas. 

The decorations have become 
larger and larger, more lights are 
strung up for each new celebra- 
tion, the fireworks display grows 
each year and new ideas are added 
often. One year, for example, 
Santa Claus arrived on water skis 
from up the Cane River. 

This year's festival begins at 
11 a.m. with a Garden Club flower 
show in the People's Bank on 
brick-paved Front Street. At 2 
p.m., Miss Merry Christmas will 
lead a parade through the streets 
of Natchitoches while thousands 
watch and await the nighttime 
climax of the celebration. 

On the Fleur de Lis stage on 
the river bank, spectators will be 
entertained throughout the even- 
ing with music from the North- 
western band, a gymnastics show, 
water skiiers and other attract- 

Dozens of bands from surround- 
ing towns will march and play 
during the parade and throughout 
the day, and Christmas carols will 
be offered by the combined voi- 
ces of the Northwestern Chorus, 
and Choirs from two churches 
and a high school in Natchitoches. 

Santa Claus himself will make 
his first appearance of the day in 
the parade, tossing out candy and 
favors to squealing children along 
the winging route of the float- 
filled parade. 

In full view during the morning 
and afternoon activities will be 
thousands of unlighted bulbs of 
splendid colors which, for weeks, 
have been strung across city 
streets, atop the historically rich 
buildings and along senic Cane 
River, which flows along Front 
Street through the center of the 

Gigantic and colorful decora- 
tions adorn the river-banks and 
the bridge in the heart of Natchi- 

Last year, workmen counted 
more than 170,000 lights which 
were used to decorate the city, 
and this year, the total will reach 
200,000. Workers have scurried 
about since mid-summer prepar- 
ing the lighting and decorations 
for the festival. 

Youngsters will pay visits to 
the Santa Claus House on Cane 

a junior, are from Shreveport. 
Nugier and Welman, both freh- 
man, are from New Orleans. 

The group was formed two 
months ago and performed earlier 
this semester at a music conven- 
tion in Lafayette and on KALB- 
TV in Alexandria.

River, and the adults will drive 
far out of their way to pass by the 
brilliance and beauty of the lights 
bouncing off the water. 

Many of the old-timers will 
leave this year's festival talking, 
as usual, about the long, splendid 
history of the celebration. 

According to one long-time resi- 
dent of Natchitoches, the festival 
never "sprang forth at any one 
time in history. It just grew." 

Marcie Fowler, this year's Miss 
Merry Christmas, is a bright-eyed 
blonde student at Natchitoches 
High School. She sums up the 
feeling of thousands in just a few 
words. ' 'Christmas wouldn't be 
Christmas in Natchitoches with- 
out the festival." 

The festival will near a climax 
at dusk when thousands of dollars 
worth of fireworks blast into the 

air and light the sky for miles 
around. Because of the enormous 
crowds which line both sides of 
the river, identical firework dis- 
plays are presented on either side 
of the Cane. 

Following the fireworks display, 
the thousands of lights will burst 
into color across the city. The 
riverbank decorations, shouting 
Merry Christmas and Happy New 
Year in green and red, will be 
lighted, and their brillance will 
be magnified by the reflection in 
the placid waters of the winding 

This explosion of color will end 
the formal activities of the Natchi- 
toches Christmas Festival, but for 
the people of Natchitoches, it is 
only the beginning of more than 
a month of holiday happiness, 
warmth and enjoyment.

STANDING IN A LINE are Coach Tynes Hildebrand and his starting five. They are 6'2" 
sophomore guard Peter Gray, No. 20, 6'6" sophomore center James Wyatt, No. 40, 

6'3" senior forward Jerry McLaurin, No. 50, 6'4" senior forward David Clark, No. 30 and 
5'10" sophomore guard Wayne Lee, No. 14. 

Clark-Led Quintet To Battle Ga. Southern 

David Clark, senior forward, 
will be shooting this season for 
membership in this school's ex- 
clusive 1500-point club. 

A 6'4" product of Natchitoches 
High School, Clark has rolled up 
1,028 points in his three seasons 
with the Demons. 

Clark would have to come up 
with the best season of his car- 
eer to land in the 1500-point 
bracket, where he would join 
such former Northwestern stand- 
outs as Dick Brown and Claude 

The cagers opened the season 
Thursday night against Delta 
State at Cleveland, Miss., and 

have returned to Natchitoches 
for the first home game of the 
campaign tomorrow at 4 p.m. 
against Georgia Southern. 

A good outside shooter and 
almost flawless on short shots, 
Clark was the Demons' leading 
scorer last season while picking 
up All-Gulf States Conference 

Clark tossed in 155 field goals 
and 125 of 148 free throws for a 
total of 435 points— an 18.1 aver- 
age. As a junior, he had 383 
points and scored 210 points in 
his freshman year at Demonland. 

Northwestern coach Tynes Hil- 

debrand, who tutored Clark du- 
ring his career at Natchitoches 
High School, says, "Dave is one 
of the finest basketball players 
I have ever coached. He is not ex- 
ceptionally fast or strong, but he 
has good moves, and he works 
hard at being a good basketball 
player. We are looking for great 
things from him in his senior 

In addition to his scoring abil- 
ities, Clark is a top-notch re- 
bounder. He was second to James 
Wyatt in that department last 
year, averaging eight a game. 

Clark's sure eye for the basket 
has helped him set an all-time 

NSC record in free throw per- 

He hit 60 of 71 in 12 conference 
games last year for a record of 
84.5 percent. It tied the mark 
Clark set in 1964-65 by making 
49 of 58 in 10 conference contests. 

Clark is one of the only two 
seniors on the Demon squad this 
season. The other is forward 
Jerry McLaurin of Istrouma of 
Baton Rouge. 

"Both Clark and McLaurin will 
be valuable to us this season not 
only because of their ability but 
because of the leadership they 
will give as seniors," said Hilde- 

Players Vote 27-22 

GSC Champs Snub All Post-Season Offers 

Turning down post-season in- 
vitations to the Pecan Bowl and 
to the NAIA playoffs after a 
27-24 "coach-killer" victory over 
Southeastern, the new Gulf States 
Conference football kings called 
it quits and celebrated their first 
undefeated, untied season since 

If the Demons had accepted 
either of the two bids, they would 
have had to trim their numbers 

Pecan Bowl regulations specify 
that freshmen are ineligble to 
participate, and the NAIA play- 
off rules prevent a team from 
dressing out more than 35 players. 
The Demons normally dress out 
49 men for home games and 45 
for road contests. 

Preferring not to play at any- 
thing less than full strength, the 
gridders voted 27-22 in favor of 
staying home and minding their 

According to coach Jack Clay- 
ton, the 27-22 vote concerned only 
the NAIA playoffs, and not the 
Pecan Bowl. Clayton acknowledg- 
ed that the players had already 
privately decided not to go to the 
annual A b i 1 i n e, Tex., extrava- 
gant- . . 

If three more Demons had voted 

"Yea" instead of "Nay", the na- 
tionally ranked club would have 
accepted the NAIA offer. 

This could have meant that 
there might have been one more 
home game. The probable oppon- 
ent would have been taken from 
one of three teams: Clarion of 
Pennsylvania, Whitewater State 
of Wisconsin or Central Iowa. 

A victory over one of the pre- 
vious teams in a semifinal con- 
test would have advanced the 
Demons into the NAIA semi- 
finals at Tulsa, Okla., Dec. 10. 

As a consequence of refusing 
the NAIA bid, the Demons will 
forfeit their right to the number 
one position in the same organi: 
zation's national poll. 

Mixed Emotions 

"I've had mixed emotions about 
this," asserted Clayton, but I'm 

kind of glad they decided not to 
go. We'll be able to spend more 
time on recruting." 

Regardless of the result of the 
Southeastern game, the "Purple 
and White" would have won an 
undisputed GSC crown since 
Southwestern downed McNeese, 
the only squad that still had a 
chance to tie for top honors. The 
last Clayton-coached team that 
had sole possession of the title 
was in 1962. 


Scoring three touchdowns in 
the first quarter, Southeastern's 
upset-thinking Lions brought 
moans and groans from 7,500 un- 
believing Demon Stadium fans. 

Quarterback Bobby Cotten, 
along with some other seemingly 
uncatchable and unstoppable Lion 
backs made the Demon defense 
look bad in the first quarter as 
they ran at will through, over and 
around the defensive line. 

The first score came when Cot- 
ten threw a 15-yard line drive to 
receiver Duane Floyd. 

Responding to the stimilus, 
Malcolm Lewis evened the score 

John Short booted a 38-yard field 
goal just before the horn sounded. 
Too Tough To Die 

Trailing 24-14 as they came 
back onto the field, the Demon 
defense began to look like the 
one of past games as they stop- 
ped wide plays and dropped Cot- 
ten for several losses. But this 
time the offense couldn't go. As 
a result, neither team was able 
to score in the third frame. 

The clock showed 13:15 sec- 
onds remaining in the game when 
Quarterback Donald Guidry fired 
a jump pass over the middle to 
Reding to tighten the score. This 
12-yard pass was one of the six 
passes that Reding pulled down 
for a total of 187 yards. 

Then the kicking-master, Lewis, 
made the difference with two 
three-pointers. The first was a 22- 
yarder that evened matters 24-24, 
and the second came with only 
45 seconds left on the clock. This 
put the home team in front by 
three points. 

Oh No! 

Thinking the game was over, 
hundreds of students and fans 
raced onto the field. Over half 
the football team had already 
left the crowd for the Prather 
Coliseum dressing room, when 
the announcer's voice rang out 
over the stadium, "Will the play- 
ers please report back to the 

Thinking that some kind of 
standing ovation was in order, 
the partisan fans began to cheer, 
then realizing that their team 
was being penalized and that the 
game was not over, startled- 
sounding "boos" penetrated the 

The Demons were penalized 15 
yards from the spot of a clipping 
violation. The fine actually moved 
the ball 36 yards from the origi- 
nal line of scrimmage. 

This set up a desperate field 
goal attempt from the Demon 37. 
The ball fell short by about seven 
or eight yards.

after only three plays, with a 62- 
yard touchdown pass to Dick Red-

within 10 yards of him. 

Taking the kickoff and going 
right through the defense again, 
Cotten led his team all the way 
down to the Demon one where 
he dove over for the second 
Southeastern touchdown. Before 
the quarter ended, Cotten hit his 
favorite target Floyd with another 
scoring pass. 

Late in the second quarter, 
fullback Russ Gielow dashed over 
from the one for the second NSC 
touchdown. With only a short 
time remaining in the first half, 
Southeastern fought back, and

Saturday Concert by Lettermen 
To Climax Christmas Festivities 

(Editor's note: The Lettermen 
appear at 9 p.m. in Prather Coli- 
sieum tomorrow night. Admission 
is by SGA entertainment ticket 
or singly at the door.) 

"They can take a song that 
was a hit twenty years ago and 
make it a hit all over again, and 
they can do it without changing 
the original concept of the song." 
The young lady talking was re- 
cording and TV star, Connie 
Stevens and the "they" she was 
referring to were The Lettermen, 
a trio of young men who parlayed 
a simple theory — "songs were 
written to be sung as composers 
hoped they'd be sung" — into a 
successful singing career. 

Throughout their career, The 
Letterman have stuck to that 
concept and in doing so they've 
become one of the most success- 
ful groups in the country. Their 
records include more than a 
dozen hit singles and albums for 

Capitol "The Way You Look 

Tonight" (their first big single 
hit), "When I Fall in Love,"

Successful records did more 
than establish The Lettermen as 
one of the top vocal groups. They 
also created a demand for the 
talented trio in nightclubs, on 
television and in colleges through- 
out the country. In 1964, the trio 
was voted the No. 1 college attrac- 
tion in the Billboard Magazine 
Poll. Among their recent tele- 
vision appearances are The Red 
Skelton, Hollywood Palace, Jack 
Benny, Ed Sullivan, Dean Martin, 
Sammy Davis, Jr. shows and many 

They made their nightclub 
debut in 1962 at Hollywood's 
Crescendo and were greeted by 
unanimous praise from critics. 
Typical of the remarks that fol- 
lowed their initial club appear- 
ance was the review by columnist 
Belle Greenberg who wrote: 
"The group, literally and figura- 
tively, won their letters last night 
with the sophisticated Los Angeles 
audience." Variety described them 
as a group who "came on strongly 
with big sound and good 
rapport. . ." and the Hollywood 
Reporter called them "three 
young men who sing songs as 
the composers hoped they'd be 

Praise, however, seems to be 
a commodity that came to Jim, 
Tony and Bob even before they 
called themselves The Lettermen. 
It came to Tony (Butula) in his 
home town (Sharon, Pa.) during 
his first professional engagement 
(he sang on a radio show at eight 
years of age) and led him to a 
singing job with the famed Mit- 
chell Boys Choir and eventually 
to Hollywood. 

Praise for Bob (Engemann) 
was mainly confined to the athle- 
tic field (he was an outstanding 
football and baseball player at 
Van Nuys High School in the San 
Fernando Valley). In fact, it was- 
n't until Bob started college, 
Brigham Young University, and 
joined a singing group with his 
brother, Karl and the elder Enge- 
mann's wife, that he thought of 
singing as a career. 

While at BYU, Bob met Jim 
(Pike). The next year both of 
them came to California and join- 
ed Tony to form The Lettermen. 
Since that time, the burgeoning 
popularity of the group has seen 
their careers branch out from re- 
cords to all phases of entertain- 
ment. Despite the success, The 
Lettermen haven't changed. 
They're still the same three young 
men who have a deep respect for 
good songs and the people who 
write them. 

Cross Country 
Team To Defend 
GSC Title 

More than 30 runners from six 
Gulf States Conference schools 
will compete for the GSC cross- 
country title here tomorrow. 

Cross-country coach Paul Sim- 
mons said the 3.8 mile trek will 
get under way at 10 a.m. 

Defending GSC champion No- 
rthwestern has not fared well in 
its meets this season and is ex- 
pected to relinquish the crown. 

Four team s — Southwestern, 
Louisiana Tech, Southeastern and 
Northeast — have been impressive 
in cross-country meets throughout 
the season and should battle for 
the crown. 

McNeese has been slowed by in- 
juries, and Northwestern was 
weakened by the graduation of 
star harrier Eddie Watt.

After The Peace Corps 

Volunteers Do When They Come Home 

What The 

(Second of Two-Part Series) 
Editors Note: A recent survey 
(reported in Part One) indicates 
that college seniors, anxious to 
begin a career, do not regard 
Peace Corps service as aiding 
their longterm career goals. Be- 
low, the second in a two-part ser- 
ies examines the influence of 
Peace Corps service on career 
choices made by 7,000 returned 
Volunteers and explains why half 
of them are back in the classroom. 

Once upon a time there was no 
such thing as a returned Peace 
Corps Volunteer. | 

Not until 1963 did the first 
corp of Volunteers begin return- 1 
ing to the U.S. after completing 
their two-year tours. In the in- 
terim, the Peace Corps' "task 
force" administration eagerly 
sought reports from the field and 
"Washington types" (in Volunte- 
er argot) probed about overseas 
to see firsthand what their cre- 
ation was doing. 

That was three years ago. Since 
then, more than 10,000 Volunte- 
ers have completed service, but 
almost as soon as they reappeared 
on the American scene, there 
were a few overly-publicized 
cases of "reverse culture shock." 

Some ex-Volunteers reported dif- 
ficulty in getting satisfying jobs 
and some complained that no one 
understood what they had experi- 
enced overseas. 

From this developed the well- 
circulated, but unfounded myth 
that Peace Corps Volunteers are 
an odd lot of young, directionless 
people not really qualified to do 
much of anything. 

Those, however, who had jobs 
and money to hand out — graduate 
schools, Federal agencies, inter- 
national business firms, school 
superintendents, and non-profit 
organizations — felt differently. As 
returned Volunteers became avail- 
able, the Peace Corps established 
its own Career Information Ser- 
vice to channel to returnees the 
growing number of requests from 
all quarters for former Volunte- 

The Peace Corps experience 
appears to be making a visible 
impact on the career choices of 
Volunteers by steering them 
more and more towards education 
and government employment. 
Among the first 7,000 Volunte- 
ers to return to the U. S., just 
over half either are continuing 
their college studies, mostly for 

graduate degrees, or teaching. 
Another 12 per cent are working 
with several Federal agencies 
here and abroad. 

Two factors explain why a 
third of all Volunteers return to 
school: 93 per cent have had pre- 
vious college education. (Many, 
indeed, regard Peace Corps ser- 
vice as a convenient and valuable 
breathing period between under- 
graduate and graduate study.), 
Another 54 per cent change care- 
er plans during their two years 
overseas, often necessitating fur- 
ther study. 

With about 55 per cent of all 
Volunteers serving as teachers, 
it is evident that Peace Corps 
service is stimulating returnees 
to enter the teaching profession 
at home. Seventeen per cent of 
all returned Peace Corpsmen are 
working in classrooms, from 
grade school to college, often us- 
ing knowledge and methods de- 
veloped overseas. Many of these 
Volunteers-turned-teachers report 
that their Peace Corps experience 
decided them to make teaching a 

The back-to-the-classroom trend 
is being fostered by col- 
leges and local authorities which 

are providing increasing incen- 
tives in the form of financial aid, 
teaching accreditation and salary 

In 1966-67, 69 colleges and uni- 
versities offered 322 scholarships, 
assistantships and fellowships 
(available only to returned Vol- 
unteers) and 14 cities and states 
—including New York, California 
and Missouri and the New York 
City Board of Education — have 
offered special teaching certifi- 
cate waivers and adjusted salary 
scales to former Volunteers. 

Federal agencies, particularly 
those with overseas operations, 
have been quick to attract ex- Vol- 
unteers. The Peace Corps itself 
fills more than 300 of its Wash- 
ington-based and overseas po- 
sitions with returnees; 131 work 
with the Agency for International 
Development, including several 
on assignment in Southeast Asia; 
45 are engaged in the War on 
Poverty; and 19 and 16 respec- 
tively serve as Foreign Service 
Officers and with the United 
States Information Agency. 

Volunteers also are seeking — 
and getting — positions with a 
wide range of voluntary, domestic 
and international organizations, 

such as C.A.R.E., the United Na- 
tions, the African-American Insti- 
tute, the National Teacher Corps, 
Bureau of Indian Affairs, Catholic 
Relief Services and the Asia Foun- 

Unfairly branded a few years 
ago as skeptics, the business 
world also has been showing 
marked interest in Volunteers 
(whom it recognizes as having 
gone through not only an unsual 
maturation process but a rigorous 
selection). Twenty per cent of 
employed Volunteers work for 
American business organizations, 
from promoting college textbooks 
to architectural designing. Most 
are employed in administrative, 
consulting, engineering, scientif- 
ic and sales positions. 

More than 100 international 
and overseas firms have sought 
to hire returned Volunteers for 
positions abroad in several fields. 
Returnees presently are working 
in mining, construction, sales, 
marketing and management over- 

Despite rising numbers of ap- 
plications from college seniors in 
1966, Peace Corps recruiters still 
report difficulty in convincing

Student Revolution 

(Editor's note: the following editorial is reprinted from 
The Vermillion, student newspaper of the University of 
Southwestern Louisiana) 

Student revolt — the words themselves bring 
cold shivers to university administrators through- 
out the nation. 

Student revolt — the words are now becoming 
shopworn as attention grabbers in newspaper head- 
lines and atop magazine articles. 

Student revolt — has been the topic of countless 
speeches, discussions, and occasional thoughts. 

Student revolt — words often heard, but not un- 

Perhaps the most painfully obvious lesson to be 
learned from student uprising on college campuses 
across the United States, as well as throughout the 
world, is that there is something dreadfully wrong 
with the educational system of this country. 

Many of the nation's university administrators 
have long realized the problem, many have taken 
steps to counteract it. Others could not or would 
not come to grips with it. Some were unaware and 
have been awakened to the cause of the unrest of 
the six million students on American university 

The problem is simple. 

Students are dissatisfied with the mechanical, 
impersonal education they are receiving. Students 
are demanding a less-structured, more individual- 
ized means of obtaining superior education. They 
want group discussion to replace the crowded lec- 
ture room, work-study programs to replace mean- 
ingless tests,- the pass-fail system to replace grades, 
and, most important, a voice in curriculum form- 

Students are resisting the centrifugal forces of 
increased enrollments, lack of qualified teachers, 
high costs of equipment, overcrowded classrooms, 
and administrative bureaucracy propelling univer- 
sities farther and farther down the road of imper- 
sonalization, centralization, mass-testing, and 
"Mass Production Educated People." 

The American student is resisting the machine 
that takes the raw high school graduate, churns 
him through 130 hours in the classroom and pro- 
duces an Educated Person Capable of Earning $5 
Per Hour in the mass-oriented American society. 

The American student is seeking an education- 
not a diploma. 

The American student is seeking an education- 
not long lists of facts to be memorized and tested 

The American student is seeking an education- 
not dull lectures on a required course of little inter- 
est or value. 

The American student is seeking an education- 
and has determined to shape the institution from 
which he seeks it. He is not bound by tradition. He 
does not care if "this is the way it has always been 
done." He wants an education, badly enough to be 
certain that he gets it.

Lettermen End Christmas Festiva 
With Fireworks Of Their Own 

by Par Wegmann and 
Mary Ann Anderson 

A star spangled sky was the 
first sight that greeted the Letter- 
men as they arrived in Natchi- 
toches for the Saturday night con- 
cert at Prather Coliseum. Tony, 
Bob, and Jimmy enjoyed the 
colorful fireworks display for 
twenty minutes before departing 
for the Coliseum. 

Once on stage, the Lettermen, 
accompanied by the Wilson 
Brown Trio, provided their own 
fireworks. Thundering applause 
of aerial bomb impact echoed 
throughout the Coliseum after 
each number. 

The crowd, situated on the 
floor in informal attire, broke in- 
to near hysteria at the climax 
of the medley, "Groups are 
Nothing New" with the raising 
of the Confederate flag. 

Other particular favorites dur- 
ing the act were "A Summer 
Song," "Softly As I Leave You," 
and "Kansas City," in which ran- 
dom members of the audience 

After their last number, the 
Lettermen merited a standing ova- 
tion and were persuaded to sing 
a 30-minute encore. During this 
time, fulfilled such requests as 
"Cherish," "I Believe," done 
a capela, and Jimmy's interpre- 
tation of the Righteous Brothers' 
"Unchained Melody." The even- 
ing was finally culminated by the 
inspirational "You'll Never Walk 

Although the Lettermen had 
undeniably executed an overwhel- 
ming performance, their depart- 
ure from the stage left the capt- 
ivated audience still clamorinig 
for more.

Peace Corps 

(Continued from page 2) 

many students of the relevance of 
Peace Corps service to their long- 
term career goals. 

Because Volunteers have been 
re-entering American society for 
only three years, there is little 
evidence that the Peace Corps 
can cite in support of "relevance" 
beyond the conviction of the Vol- 
unteers that the two years are 
valuable and well-spent. 

But the statistics are encour- 
aging. So are the sentiments of 
the Volunteers themselves. Said 
one: "You can't make a career 
out of the Peace Corps, but you 
should make the Peace Corps 
Part of your career." 

1966 Potpourri Judged Very Good' 

1966 Potpoum. official Coming in fnr r-nncietont ' 

The 1966 Potpourri, official 
NSC yearbook, has been given a 
Second Class rating by the Asso- 
ciated Collegiate Press, accord- 
ing to Fred L. Kildow, ACP di- 

In explaining the Second Class 
rating, Kildow notes that this rat- 
ing "is given to the majority of 
entries, which have been judged 
as good to very good, and indi- 
cates that these yearbooks are 
doing a good job in a workman- 
like manner." 

Other ratings possible are Ail- 
American, which represents "sup- 
erior"; First Class, which is de- 
scribed as "excellent"; and Third 
Class, which is designated as 
"fair to good." No honor rating 
is given to publications below 
Third Class. 

Praise Given 

Praise was given by the ACP 
for both senior class and under- 
class sections of the 1966 book, 
as well as for special appeal fac- 
tors (color photos, division pages, 

Other features coming in for 
special praise were the headlines, 
"design extras," and over-all ed- 
iting of the book. Mrs. Betty Mo- 
ore Meachum was the 1966 editor. 

The cover of the 1966 book was 
judged "superior," and the bind- 
ing was rated excellent. The ACP 
was also impressed with the fi- 
nancial status of the book, term- 
ing this the result of "superior 


Since it is one of the primary 
jobs of the ACP judge to provide 
constructive criticism of each 
book, numerous comments con- 
cerning "what could have been 
better" are always made.

Coming in for consistent crit 
icism and low scores throughout 
the book were the writeups for 
various sections ( academic, 
sports, and student life). A typ- 
ical comment from ACP: "Why 
not say what was new this past 
year? Labs, courses, equipment, 
buildings. What speakers came 
from where; where to on what 
field trips? etc." 

The "presentations" for the 
academic section, the student life 
section, and the faculty section 
were also rated low. "A rather 
unbalanced picture of what goes 
on at your school. Everyday life 
is covered by a few miscellaneous 
photos. Should be something 
more for them (faculty & admin- 

Also coming in for criticism 
was over-all organization of the 
book, space allocation and bal- 
ance, and the lack of reference 

Activity photos were seen by 
ACP as: "Very few used consis- 
tently, except on Greek pages, 
and too many of those included 
do not cover vital activities." 

Minor criticism was voiced by 
ACP on Student Life portraits 
(especially the size of Who's 
Who), typography (inconsistent 
use of type, type too small in 
places), and type areas. 
Over-All Comments 

Over-all, concluding comments 
by the ACP included: 

"Beautiful color photos, but 
too bad so few really encompass 

all facets of your campus life 

Even your division page for aca- 
demics lacks the vitality of 

the others and the academic 

section itself really lacks tho-

1965-66 Advisor Comments 

Dwight Connelly, Potpourri ad- 
visor for the major portion of last 
year, commented on the ACP rat- 

"The ACP judging seems to be 
quite fair. Actually, we knew 
most of these things all along. 
There has been less advising by 
the advisors for the Potpourri — 
hence less instruction — than is 
true for the Current Sauce. I 
think the lack of advisor involve- 
ment shows, although there are 
certainly advantages to our pres- 

ent situation. Last year the Pub- 
lications Committee approved a 
special yearbook course, Journal- 
ism 298, which I feel would be 
helpful. Unfortunately, we were 
unable to offer the course this 

"I think a lot of credit should 
be given to Mrs. Meachum, and 
her assistant, Wayne Meachum, as 
well as the entire 1965-66 staff 
far their work. They showed en- 
thusiasm, initiative, and creative- 
ness. Moreover, they did a good 
job budget-wise. While the sys- 
tem may not be perfect, certainly 
the staff did a good job under the 

"The 1966 book was only a few 
points shy of First Class. I feel 
that this year's book, under Way- 
ne Meachum, will receive the 
First Class rating. The campus 
photography is better, the staff is 
more experienced, and some in- 
novations are planned which will 
surely add to the book. 

"Earl Coulon, this year's ad- 
visor, is most eager to help pro- 
duce the finest book possible, and 
he is certainly qualified to advise 
in such critical areas as copy 
writing, layout, and coverage."

Circle K Prexy 

Wayne Branton, a sophomore 
from Gretna was recently named 
president of the NSC Circle K 
Club to fill the shoes of Lynn 
Hargrave, who graduated this 

Branton served as vice presi- 
dent when the club was organized 
in the spring of 1966 and was 
moved up this fall. Since Har- 
grave was the only member of 
the club to graduate, officers 
from the original 25 member 
group remained the same. 

Henry Burns of Shongaloo re- 
placed Branton as Vice president. 
Other officers are, Joe Germany, 
secretary; and Steve Thibodeaux, 
treasurer. Circle K board of di- 
rectors are David Butler, Scotty 
Maxwell, Shelton Eubanks and 
Kenny Baker. 

Circle K has undertook several 
projects already this year. 
The Northwestern club served as 
host at a recent Circle K work- 
shop in which schools from LSU 
in Alexandria, Northeast State 
College and Delta State were 
present. The workshop was held 
in the conference room of Prather 
Coliseum. Discussions were held 
among the different clubs con- 
cerning types of service projects 
and ideas were exchanged on 
fund raising projects. 

The new service organization 
recently ordered 200 boxes of 
Peanut Brittle as a fund raising 
project and the candy is being 
sold to the public at $1.00 per 
box. The candy is a Kiwanis pro-

Wouldn't It Be Loverly 

By Joe Landrum 

Audrey's back in town-this 
time breathtakingly done up in 
antiquated splendor by Cecil Bea- 
ton, and studying speech under 
an imperious professor of phone- 
tics, Henry Higgins (Rex Harri- 

One evening, Mr. Higgins has 
occasion to speak with grubby 
Eliza Doolittle (Miss Hepburn), 
and is appalled at her mutilation 
of the English language. (It 
seems that she drops her 

The good professor, who enjoys 
nothing if not a challenge, decides 
he'll teach the girl to speak with 
such Mayfair elegance that even 
London's IN Crowd will be fooled! 

Unlikely though it may seem, 
this is the plot of George Bernard 
Shaw's "Pygmalion" upon which 
"My Fair Lady," a hit Broadway 
play and a $17,000,000 motion pic- 
ture, is based. 

Critics are not in accord on the 
merit of Miss Hepburn's perfor- 
mance in the recent screen pro- 

Newsweek magazine flatly 
states: "She is pretty and she is 
animated and she tries, but even 

if there had never been a Julie 
Andrews, she does not have the 
range. She is not low enough as a 
flower girl and therefore, cannot 
rise high enough to be startling." 

Time magazine, however finds 
that "her comedy scenes are de- 
lectable, her charm ineluctable." 

After a slow start when the 
practical proficiency of her Cock- 
ney dialect suggests that Audrey 
Hepburn is really only slumming, 
she warms her way into a grace- 
ful glamorous perforamce, the 
best of her career." 

On the other hand, reviewers 
agree that Harrison's portrayal 
of Higgins is laudable.

Evan G Ryder, a freshman at 
Northwestern State College, died 
Thursday at Doctors Hospital in 
Shreveport of injuries suffered 
in an accident on the Northwest- 
ern campus more than two weeks 

Ryder sustained head injuries 
Nov. 15 when the bicycle he was 
riding collided head-on with a 
small bus driven by Grant F. 

Kenner of the Northwestern Art 
Department. The accident occurr- 
ed on Sibley Drive. 

A biology major from Deville, 
Ryder was a graduate of Buckeye 
High School, where he was a let- 
terman in both football and track. 

Among survivors are his par- 
ents, Mr. and Mrs. J.T. Ryder Sr. 
of Deville, and two brothers.

Following Fowler's committee 
report, Faraldo discussed the pos- 
sibility of bring three big-name 
groups to NSC this spring, Ac- 
cording to Faraldo, the Supremes, 
Roy Orbison, Peter Paul and Mary 
or the Mamas and Papas will be 
contacted as to appearing here 
next semester. 

Foster's student service com- 
mittee report of the meeting with 
President Kilpatrick and Guissipe 
D'Avanzo was next on the SGA 
agenda. Foster, who distributed 
neatly typed reports of the com- 
mittee meeting, stated that the 
suggestion boxes in the cafeterias 
had been opened and discussed 
at his group's meeting. 

Many of the suggestions, ac- 
cording to Foster, are now being 
carried out in the dining halls. 
These include the removing of 
loose carpets in St. Denis and 
serving both tea and Kool-Aid at 
the same meal. 

President Milton Rhea com- 
mented enthusiastically on the 
neatly typewritten report that 
Foster had submitted and em- 
phasized that he would like to 
receive this kind of report each 
week from each committee head. 

To make this suggestion offi- 
cial, Maxwell moved that each 
committee be required to hand in 
the typewritten report to the SGA. 

To this new SGA motion, Far- 
aldo demanded to know the exact 
"purpose of these committee re- 
ports" and why reports need be 
submitted at all. Foster answered 
curtly, "So next year the commi- 
ttee chairman can see what the 
group did the year before." 

In other SGA action, President 
Rhea congratulated the Black 
Knights for their outstanding 
performance last week and wished 
them luck in their competition in 
New Mexico this week. 

The SGA also authorized the 
purchase of certificates and pla- 
ques for football team members 
and coaches for recognition of 
their winning season. The awards 
will be presented to the team and 
coaches at a later date.

Black Knight Drill Team Sweep Firsts 
In 3 Divisions On Houston Campus 

By Nick Pollacia, Jr. 

They came, they saw, and they 
won — and it's probable that even 
the most crack drill unit of Cae- 
ser's Legions would have been 
out-classed by the Northwestern 
State College Black Knight Drill 

At the Fourth Annual Gulf 
Coast Drill Competition on the 
campus of the University of Hou- 
ston this past Saturday, the Black 
Knights Drought home the first 
place trophy in standard drill 
and the first place trophy in 
fancy drill and compiled enough 
points to also win the Grand Ag- 
gregate Championship Trophy for 
first place in the entire meet. 

The countless hours invested in 
practice payed big dividends as 
the Black Knights defeated 15 
other drill teams from Arkansas, 
Texas, Louisiana, and New Mex- 
ico. Of a possible total of 775 
points, the Black Knights com- 
piled a total of 725.5. The team 
from Texas A&I finished second 
with 704.1, and the team from 
Texas A&M finished third with 

The competition was judged on 
four areas: standard drill, fancy 
drill, inspection, and individual 
competition. Cadet Capt. Larry 
Cash, the Black Knight entry in 
the individual competition, fin- 
ished 3rd. Competition was close 
going into the final event, fancy 
drill, which is evidenced by the 
fact that only 2 points separated 
the top three teams at this 
point — but from then on it was a 
Black Knight show all the way. 
The Black Knights finished their 
difficult routine losing «nly .6 of 
a point along the way. 

This week-end Cadet Lt. Col. 
Jim Ellis and his Black Knights 
journey to Roswell, New Mex., 
and the campus of the University 
of New Mexico for the South 

West Grid Classic Invitational 
Drill Meet, which is held in con- 
junction with the Juniow College 
Football Bowl. A strong showing 
at this meet may mean an invi- 
tation to the National Champion- 
ships which are held in conjunc-. 
tion with the Cherry Blossom 
Festival in Washington, D.C., a 
trip which has been placed on the 
Black Knight's "hopeful" itener- 
ary, and may possibly have to 
remain there because of a short- 
age in funds.

annual football banquet held at 
the Methodist Church Monday 

The Demon football squad 
which rolled to an defeated sea- 
son and the Gulf States Confer- 
ence championship, was honored 
at the fete by the Quarterback 

For the second straUht year, 
Reding and Dodd tied for the 
"Most Valuable Player" honors. 
Both are seniors and have been 
outstanding in many departments 
during their gridiron careers. 

Reding, a 205-pound end from 
Bossier City, tied with guard 
Eddie Mittlebronn of New Or- 
leans for the "Best Offensive 
Lineman" award. Dodd, a 175- 
pound safety from West Jeffer- 
son, was voted the "Best De- 
fensive Back". 

Dodd and Reding, along with 
senior center Carroll Long of 
Winnfield were chosen as the 
team's permanent captains. 

Malcolm Lewis, junior quarter- 
back from Marshall, Texas, took 

the "Best Offensive Back" award. 
Lewis was the Demons' total of- 
fensive leader. 

Middle guard Gerald Malley 
was named as the squad's "Best 
Defensive Lineman". 

Neal Prather, a junior half- 
back, captured the "Scholastic 
Award" by maintaining a 3.5 aca- 
demic average. 

Senior guard Kenny Guillot and 
sophomore back Meyer Irby were 
presented the "Coaches' Award", 
which is given each year to play- 
ers who display the most hustle 
and the best attitude during prac- 
tice sessions. 

Al Dodd has been named to 
the Associated Press small col- 
lege All-American football 
team for 1966. Dodd, an out- 
standing safety, intercepted 
nine passes this year, raising 
his career total to 31. 

GSC Coaches Give 
Demons Three Top 
Awards In League 

Malcom Lewis, Dick Reding, 
Al Dodd and David Lovich were 
honored by being named to the 
coaches 1966 All-Gulf States Con- 
ference football squad. 

Jack Clayton, who led the De- 
mons through a 9-0 year, was 
voted "Coach of the Year" by 
his GSC colleagues. 

Lewis, a junior quarterback, 
was selected as the "Back of the 
Year" and Reding, a senior end, 
was given the title, "Lineman of 
the Year." 

Clayton, who has coached at 
"Demonland" for 10 years, has 
compiled a 58-35-2 record during 
his stay. This was his third time 
to be named "Coach of the Year" 
in the GSC. 

Before coming to Northwestern, 
Clayton coached at Western Ken- 
tucky where he produced four 
championship teams. 

At both schools, Clayton has an 
overall record of 108 victories, 
67 defeats and four ties. Of the 
active coaches in a listing of 313 
in National Collegiate Athletic 
Association small college foot- 
ball, fewer than ten per cent have 
reached 100 victories in their 

Lewis, a 6'4", 195-pound quar- 
terback, who transferred from the 
University of Texas, led the 
league in scoring with 56 points 
and in passing with 852 yards. 
Lewis passed for six touchdowns 
during the season. He also 
scored three touchdowns, kicked 
29 of 32 extra points and booted 
three field goals in six attempts. 

Reding was the top pass catch- 
er in the circuit this fall. He 
caught 32 passes for 595 yards 
for an 18.6 average. Three of 
these passes were for touch- 
downs. In the Southeastern game, 
Reding pulled down a 62-yard 
throw for a six-pointer in the De- 
mons' longest passing play of the 

Dodd and Lovich were given 
berths on the defensive unit. 
Dodd, a National Association of 
Intercollegiate Athletics Ail- 
American safety last year, was 
named to the All-GSC team for 
the third year in a row. 

Dodd intercepted nine passes 
(the GSC record) this season and 
scored two touchdowns. Dodd also 
ran back punts and kickoffs when 
not intercepting passes. He aver- 
aged 21.1 yards on kickoff re- 
turns and 16.3 yards on punt re- 

Lovich, a 6'4", 230-pound de- 
fensive end, did an exceptional 
job at his position this year, and 
will be back to harass Demon 
foes next year, since he is only 
a junior.

By Sports Staff 

Yes, Virginia, there is still a 
good football team. 

Very seldom does a coach who 
has just completed a 9-0 season 
have the pleasure of looking for- 
ward to a similar season next 
fall, and Heaven knows, certainly 
not the next. As it now appears, 
Jack Clayton, "Coach Of The 
Year", is the exception to the 

Only eight seniors will be lost, 
and many of the returning letter- 
men are sophomores and fresh- 
men. Maybe this is being a bit 
optimistic, but it looks like the 
Demons will be a powerhouse for 
a long time to come. 

All-GSCers Al Dodd and Dick 
Reding won't be back next year. 
Neither will Gary Pittman, Ron 
Hendricks, Carroll Long, Eddie 
Mittelbronn, Kenny Guillot and 
Ross Gwinn. 

The loss of Reding, Pittman 
and Dodd might seem to predict a 
weakness in the Demons' scoring 
ability next year. 

Acknowledging that each mem- 
ber of the previous trio is a touch- 

down threat, it seems only fitting 
to say that these three seniors 
accounted for only 54 of their 
team's 236 this season. Malcolm 
Lewis outscored all three with 
56 points. 

Lewis and Don Guidry, consid- 
ered by many as the best two 
quarterbacks in the GSC this 
year, will both be back again. 

Russ Gielow and Neal Prather, 
the running backs, are still on the 
roll, and pass receivers Steve Gas- 
pard, Louis Richard and Ken Gal- 
lens will return, thus leaving 
little weakness in the offense. 

With guys like David Lovich 
and Gerald Malley stopping the 
running plays, and with the David 
Smith and Sammy Clifton taking 
care of the air attack, don't worry 
about the defense either. 

So the outlook for next year is 
bright. Maybe another perfect 
season? Your guess is as good as 
mine, Virginia. 

GSC Guesses 

Speaking of guesses, the Cur- 
rent Sauce sports staff went .687 
for the year on football predic- 

Basketball Team Rolls Over McNeese; 
Victory Ups Season Record To 3-1 

A partisan crowd of about 1500 
saw the Demons down the Mc- 
Neese Cowboys in their GSC sea- 
son opener in Prather Coliseum 
last night. 

The Northwestern five chalked 
up their 71-63 victory by pulling 
away in the final minutes of the 
fourth quarter. It was the De- 
mon's third win in four contests. 

Last night's game was a closely 
fought battle with the Northwest- 
ern squad taking a slim 33-29 
margin into the dressing room at 
half time. 

Both free throws and rebounds 
spelled the difference in the 
contest as the Demons out jump- 
ed and proved more accurate 
than the visitors from Lake Char- 

The Demons' accuracy was ap- 
parent as they made 33 of 40 from 
the foul line. They were led in 
this department by 6'6" center 
James Wyatt. Wyatt hit on 13 of 
14 charity tosses. Next in this de- 
partment was David Clark who 
made 12 of 14. 

Another factor contributing to 
the Demons' success was their 
rebounding. The Northwestern 
quintet controlled the backboards 
with relative ease by grabbing 
45 stray shots to the Cowboy's 29. 

BSU, WT, Caspari 
Post Victories 

The second week of basketball 
action saw the White Trash, the 
Baptist Student Union No 1 and 
West Caspari become the leaders 
in their respective leagues. 

On Monday, PEK won its first 
game of the year by downing the 
Rejects 37-36. The Baptist Stu- 
dent Union No. 2 was defeated 
by West Caspari 68-37. Kappa Al- 
pha No. 2 defeated the Uncouths 
by a 32-23 count while the Green 
Weenies tromped TKE 49-35. 

Tuesday's final scores flound 
the Untouchables' 33-32 margin 
sufficient to defeat Pas Bas Tous. 
Sigma Tau downed Kappa Sigma 
46-26, and the Baptist Student 
Union No. 1 mauled TKE by a 
46-16 score. The White Trash beat 
the Double Bonds 50-39, and The 
Yanks completed the day's action 
by trouncing Kappa Alpha No. 1 

James Wyatt was the titan in 
this department also as he grab- 
bed 12 out of the air. 

On the other hand, the Cow- 
boys' progress was constantly 
hindered by fouls. The McNeese 
squad racked up 26 by the end of 
the game, and three players had 
four each at the termination of 
the contest. 

Ellis Boyd and Ed Green, two 
of the Cowboys' top shooters 
fouled out early in the contest. 

Although this proved fatal to 
the Cowboys, the McNeese cagers 
made an incredible nine of 18 
foul shots. They also made 27 of 
58 field goal attempts 

Their leading scorers were 
Kent Andrews with 20 points 
followed by J. C. Warren with 12. 

Northwestern's top point get- 
ters were David Clark with 22, 
and James Wyatt and Wayne Lee 
with 17. Skeeter Henry followed 
with 10. 

This was the third straight win 
for Coach Hildebrand's crew after 
an opening loss to Delta State. 

Their next contest is against 
GSC foe Southeastern at Ham- 
mond Thursday. 

Gymnastics Experts 
Are Here For Clinic 

By Bob Ardoin 

This college will sponsor the 
third Mid-South Gymnastics Clin- 
ic today and tomorrow at Prather 

The purpose of the clinic is to 
meet the immediate needs of the 
area by providing leadership tech- 
niques and procedures for the or- 
ganization of gymnastics pro- 
grams on the primary, elemen- 
tary, and college levels. 

An outstanding feature of the 
clinic is that it is composed of 
one of the finest collection of 
teachers and coaches iin the na- 
tion. Heading this impressive list 
of mentors is Tom Maloney, the 
former West Point gymnastics 
coach and noted national author- 
ity Maloney will be the head of 
the judging section. 

The clinic will also feature 
Vannie Edwards, gymnastics 
coach at Centenary College. Ed- 
wards was also the 1964 Women's 
Olympic coach. Sharing the in- 
struction duties with Edwards 
will be the gymnastics coach of 
Southwetern, Jeff Henrtessy. 
Lloyd Huval, instructor at Louis- 
iana State University at New Or- 
leans, will also take part. 

Coed Diver Wins 
Two First Places 

Five divers posted victories in 
both one-meter and three meter 
competition here Saturday in the 
Christmas Festival Diving Champ- 
ionships held at the Natatorium. 

Christine Holley of the Natchi- 
toches Neptunes won both events 
in the 11-12 year age bracket, and 
Nancy Thomas, another diver, 
won both the one-meter and three- 
meter competition in the thirteen 
and fourteen year old girls com- 

Steve Schenthal of New Orleans 
was a double winner in 13-14 boys 
competition, and Alan Ross of 
Shreveport scored dual victories 
in the boys 15 and older division. 

Vicki Todd, a freshman at 
Northwestern, won both events in 
the 15 and older category. 

Other winners were David Aa- 
rons of Natchitoches in the three- 
meter competition for boys 10 and 
under; Melissa Briley of Natchi- 
toches in the girls 10 and under 
bracket of the three meter divi- 
sion and Jay Dolley of Baton 
Rouge in the three-meter boys 11 
and 12 year section. 

A copy of Thomas L. Wade's 
Fundamental Mathematics has 
been found in the Louisiana Room 
of the library. Owner may claim 
the book upon identifying it.

Vol. LIII— No. 15 Northwestern State College, Natchitoches, Louisiana Friday, Dec. 16, 1966 

SGA Okays Publication Budgets, 
Contributes Funds To Drill Team 

Saturday's football hero 
and the queen of the ball 
claimed the major popularity 
crowns of the campus in 
Tuesday's Mr. and Miss NSC 
elections when Pamela Rush- 
ing and Al Dodd polled more 
votes than runoff opponents 
Barbara Wallace and Milton 

Announcement of the titles 
was made at the Christmas assem- 
bly today by President Kilpatrick. 

Pamela Rushing 

Miss Rushing is a math educa- 
tion major of Natchitoches, this 
year's Lady of the Bracelet, last 
years alternate Lady of the Bra- 
celet (she took over when the 
winner, Mrs. Larry Fisher, was 
married), and State Fair Queen. 

She was presented at the Pot- 
pourri Ball as the most talented 

student on campus. A senior, she 
plans to teach Mathematics. 

Dodd has received many ath- 
letic honors during his stay at 
Northwestern. He has twice been 
named to All-American teams in 
football, has made All-GSC squads 
for the last three years, and holds 
NAIA season and career intercep- 
tion records. Dodd is a senior 
from New Orleans. 

Today's musical program for 
the Christmas assembly was pre- 
sented by the NSC Chorale and 

Al Dodd 

the Contemporary Dancers. "A 
Children's Christmas" was danc- 
ed by members of the campus 
dance organization and guest dan- 
cers Phyllis Hawthorne, Janet 
McCauley, and Robert Alost. The 
chorale presentation included tra- 
ditional carols, Christmas folk 
tunes, and a musical retelling of 

"The Christmas Story." 

The NSC Madrigal Singers sang 
"Allon, Gay Bergers," a French 
carol, and "Fum, Fum, Fum," a 
Scottish Carol, prior to the dan- 
cers' toy-shop celebration. 

Members of the Contemporary 
Dancers are Carol Adkins, Caro- 
lyn Atkins, Janie Pat Armstrong, 
Brenda Jones, Charlotte Jowers, 
Betty Morgan, Bill Nolan, Shirley 
Rutledge, and Bethyn Smith. The 
group is under the direction of 
Colleen Nelken and Jan Callen- 

Despite problems in gathering 
a quorum, the Student Govern- 
ment Association managed to ap- 
rove the much-debated Current 
Sauce and Potpourri budgets, 
voted to give the Black Knights 
$500 of the SGA funds for their 
trip to the Cherry Blossom Festi- 
val, and bickered about what was 
or was not an excused absence. 

Of the 18 voting members of 
the SGA, only 11 were on hand, 
making it impossible to carry on 
any business until one more per- 
son came. 

When that person arrived, the 
group voted to give the Black 
Knights $500 toward their pro- 
posed trip next semester. The 
group actually needed $1,600 

more to reach their goal of 
$2,500. David Faraldo brought up 
the question of giving the entire 
$1,600 to the Knights, but Scotty 
Maxwell, treasurer, was against 
this movement. Maxwell said 
that last year the gymnastics 
team, rated No. 1 in the nation, 
received no SGA funds for their 
trip and felt it was not fair to 
play favorites with the Black 

The newly-acquired forum al- 
lowed voting to proceed on the 
Sauce and Potpourri budgets. The 
SGA had found question with the 
two budgets for the past several 
weeks. The Potpourri budget pas- 
sed with no dissenters, while Jer- 
ry Kemp was the only "no" vote 

on the Sauce budget. 

President Milton Rhea spoke 
to the group concerning absen- 
ces. "I don't know how you feel 
about these absences," said Rhea, 
"but you people are elected to 
come to these meetings every 
Monday night unless, you have 
a valid excuse." 

The group then went into a 
chatting session about absences 
and rulings on their validity. 

The student loan fund com- 
mittee and the constitution com- 
mittee activities were discussed 
and questioned by the group. The 
questions were then turned back 
over to the committees, thus end- 
ing the meeting 


Parisian Yule Sparkles With Majestic Serenity 

(Editor's Note: Mrs. Corinne M. 
Ryland, language instructor and 
Louisville, Ky., native, has spent 
five Noels in France. Mrs. Ry- 
land's "Christmas in Paris" was 
originally written for the Louis- 
ville-Courier Journal for which 
she was special feature-writer for 
ten years.) 

By Corinne Ryland 

Christmas is more than a 
holly wreath; it is more than 
an evergreen tree laden with 
gifts. It is far more than the 
mad rush of buying weeks 
before the twenty-fifth of De- 
cember, or the frenzy of each 
to outdo the other in the se- 
lection of costly presents. 

Christmas is the time of the 
spirit, a time of communion in 
warm friendship, a time when 
people of every Christian land 
wish to put down their burdens 
and revive courage and hope and 
peace. It is a graceful handshake 
to share the Yuletide with the 
people of another country. 

In Paris, the shops are full of 
beautiful objets d'art, exquisite 
dolls and costly toys for children. 
The markets are overflowing with 
good things to eat, tasty vegeta- 
bles, beautiful fruits, fowls, rab- 
bits, fish and huge cheeses glori- 
fied with holly and mistletoe. 
Christmas since the war in Paris 
and in France is not like it used 
to be. For the first time, in some 
ways, customs are modifed. 

The French Noel has been 
modified. This is due, perhaps, 

to the influence of Hollywood or 
perhaps it is because so many 
G.I.'s were spread over France 
during the war and because of a 
considerable number of veteran 
G.I.'s who been living here as stu- 
dents. Now can be seen numerous 
"Peres Noel" paid for by the big 
shop-keepers, walking in the 
streets of Paris, and for the first 
time Christmas trees appear in 
the open streets. But somehow 
the Santa Clauses are not the 
proverbial American brand; they 
are too thin. 

In olden times, Noel (Christ- 
mas Day) was altogether a reli- 
gious festival. Then on New 
Year's Day the wooden shoes of 
the children were placed on the 
hearths to receive the gifts. Noel 
has now supplanted New Year's 
and it has become, too, a day for 
grownups as well as for children; 
now it has become good taste for 
everyone to exchange gifts on 
that day rather than a week later. 
Noel is becoming the great family 
holiday while the first of January 
has been limited to the exchange 
of cards among friends. 

Day of Paradoxes 

But as everywhere, Christmas 
is a day of paradoxes. One might 
dine at home with one's family, 
sometimes meagerly, sometimes 
simply and sometimes lavishly 
with a meal of many courses as 
only the French know how to 
create; or one might go to a boite 
de nuit (night club) where the 
meal might be $10 for a bottle of 
champagne. A business man 

might spend far more on a dinner 
party than he would pay his sec- 
retary for a whole month. Along 
the Champs-Elysees, it is said 
that a Christmas dinner is $25 
and the champagne and wine is 

After years of privation in Fr- 
ance, years in which flour, sugar, 
eggs and milk were almost un- 
known, it is wonderful to see 
again the "patisserie" windows 
full of delicious cakes of all kinds. 
One is truly thankful that this 
great art of pastry masterpieces 
has not been lost. 

In France there are many 
feast days and each one has its 
specialties in charming little 
cakes. One of the most attractive 
items of Christmas is the "Buche 
de Noel" or Christmas cake. It 
is made in the shape of the Yule 
log that used to be brought in 
from the woods to be burned in 
the fireplace on a cold night. It 
is usually made of sponge cake 
layered with sugar cream and 
covered with chocolate icing 
roughened to resemble bark and 
often decorated with candy leaves 
and flowers or toadstools growing 
out of the log. These cakes can 
be bought at baker's in all sizes, 
the small individual size or the 
very large one for a whole party. 

The "confiseries" or candy 
shops are a sight to see with cho-

Gray But Beautiful 

At any time, Paris is a gray 
city. In the winter, at Christmas, 
the city is gray, white, cold, mys- 
terious, but very beautiful. On 
the afternoon of Christmas Eve 
along walk from St. Germain des 
Pres, on the Left Bank, to the 
Place Royale in modern Paris 
was a memorable experience. 

After wandering around in the 
old church of St. Germain des 
Pres, I sat for a while at the Cafe 
des Deux Magots and mused upon 
the period before the war when 
Henry Miller, James Joyce 
and Gertrude Stein lived in this 
sectioni. I walk on through the 
rue des Saints Peres and the rue 
Jacob and browsed through the 
wonderful antique shops of that 
section. When I came out of these

Return of Light 

Theologian Discusses The Beginnings Of Christmas 

Did you know that Christmas 
was not widely celebrated until 
long after Christ's death? It's a 

There is no record of anyone 
celebrating Christ's birthday until 
400 years after he died. At that 
time in Rome, an imperial edict 
included Christmas (wih Easter 
and Epiphany) among the three 
feasts on which theatres must be 
closed. However, before this time, 
there was a great deal of conten- 
tion regulating the birthdate of 
Christ. Various authorities claim- 
ed it was January 6th, March 25th 
and December 25th. 

Today, it really wouldn't mat- 
ter what day we celebrate Christ- 
mas. As the noted theologian. 
Dr. Oswald Hoffman, has pointed 
out to the 30 million listeners of 
his Lutheran Hour radio talks, 
"We do not argue about whether 
He was actually born on that day, 
for we celebrate the fact that 
Jesus was born and now is Lord 
and Christ." 

Birthdates were unimportant 
2,000 years ago. We do not know 
the birthdate of any famous peo- 
ple of that period. No mention is 
made in the New Testament of 
the observance of Christ's birth- 

day by the early church; in fact, 
Christians were exhorted t re- 
member His death even more 
than His birth 

Why, then, did December 25 
come to be celebrated as Christ's 
birthday? Because many of the 
earth's inhabitants were once sun- 
worshippers, since the course of 
their lives depended on the sun's 
yearly round in the heavens. 
Feasts were held to mark its re- 
turn from distant wanderings. 

In the south of Europe, in 
Egypt and Persia, the sun gods 
were revered with elaborate cere- 
monies at the season of the sol- 
stice. In northern lands, too, the 
middle of December was a crit- 
ical time, for the days became 
weaker and weaker. So, these 
ancient people held feasts at the 
same period that Christmas is 
now observed. They built great 
bonfires to give the winter sun 
god strength and to bring him 
back to life again. Thus, the cen- 
tral idea of the winter solstice — 
the return of light — made it a 
"natural" for a new Christian 
feasts celebrating the hope of 
the world in the birth of Christ, 
the Light of the world. 

In his radio message, The Luth- 
eran Hour's Dr. Hoffmann tells 

his listeners, "From that little 
manger in Bethlehem, the light 
of the knowledge of the glory of 
God has gone out to earth's far- 
therest reaches. It is all there in 
the face of Jesus Christ. From 
that day to this, no one in this 
wide world of ours need be in 
the dark about God — not if he 
has any way at all of knowing 
about Jesus Christ." 

The exact day and year bf 
Jesus' birth have never been sat- 
isfactorily settled. But when the 
fathers of the Christian Church, 
in 440 A.D., decided upon a date 
to celebrate, reluctantly chose 
the day of the winter solstice 
which was firmly fixed in the 
minds of the people as the most 
important festival up to then 

"The Son of God was made 
man," says Dr. Hoffmann. "That 
is why we keep Christmas: the 
Son of God was made man for 
us all, to make every day a new 
day of genuine love and service 
toward God as well as toward 
everyone with whom we live and 
work. Jesus Christ is Lord, and 
that makes everything right." 

As Dr. Hoffmann tells his 
Christmas Lutheran Hour aud- 
ience, "This is what gives us 
Christmas: not the trees, the 


Keep Commercial 




(Editor's Note: The following is a speech de- 
livered in Mrs. Donald Graham's introductory 
speech course by Sharon Matthews. It is pre- 
sented here because of its unusual approach 
to a subject that will face all of us in the week 
to come.) 

Every year after Halloween the world 
becomes Christmas conscious — and peo- 
ple begin deploring. 

If only we could have a real Christmas, 
they say. The good old kind. Quiet, inex- 
pensive, simple, devout. If only we could 
retrieve the holy day from the hands 
of the vulgar money-grubbers. They 
say — with earnest horror — that the price 
tag has become the symbol of the season. 

As a Christian myself, I do find some 
facets of the Christmas season ridiculous, 
offensive, and disturbing, but I believe 
most complaints about the commerciali- 
zation of Christmas are hypocritical non- 

What's supposed to be so wrong with 
a commercialized Christmas? 

For one thing it is usually said that 
Christmas has become the time of parties 
where people eat and drink too much. 
"Turning Yuletide into Fooltide"— that 
exact phrase was used to describe Christ- 
mas in Merry Ole England, so those who 
yearn for the good old Christmas should 
carefully define their terms. 

Oddly enough, it seems to me that 
people who criticize this holiday partying 
most loudly are those folks who acquire 
Christmas hangovers and indigestion, 
and then deplore it as if no one had to 
avoid hangovers or indigestion at any 
other time of the year. 

People say that commercialization has 
made the buying of Christmas presents 
a rat race. Obviously most of the gifts 
we give to each other have nothing to do 
with the infant of Bethlehem. For in- 
stance, silver-plated golf clubs and initi- 
aled cigarette lighters. Dime and de- 
partment stores are crammed with gifts 
that no wise man would bring anyone. 

With rare exceptions it is foolish to 
get scandalized and accuse manufactur- 
ers, advertisers, and vendors of desecrat- 
ing Christmas by trying to sell what you 
or I think is silly junk. Evidently some 
people like it and buy it, and that's their 

Christmas began giving presents to 
celebrate the birth of Jesus. The basic 
idea was and is to bring joy, to honor 
God in others, and to give in his name 
with love for all. But in our social struc- 
ture, with or without the blessings of the 
Internal Revenue Service, Christmas pre- 
sents serve many purposes. Gift-givers 

are often in practice diplomats, egotists, 
or investors. 

But are extortion, begging, status seek- 
ing, and advantage-taking so unusual 
that they occur only once a year? Isn't 
it more realistic to admit that whatever 
is sleazy and shady about Christmas 
isn't seasonal at all but happens all year 

Some people are dismayed today be- 
cause they honestly feel that Christmas 
is being de-Christianized. They're upset 
when someone who doesen't share their 
faith sets up a tree, exchanges gifts, and 
wishes them season's greetings instead 
of Merry Christmas. They resent spelling 
Christmas with an "X"! Others fret over 
the way Santa Claus and snowmen crowd 
out the shepherds. "Put Christ back into 
Christmas!" these offended people shout. 

Well, as far as I know Christ never 
left it. He could never be out of Christ- 
mas except in the privacy of individual 

Christmas is meant to be lived in the 
noisy arena of the shopping day count- 
down, amid aluminum Christmas trees, 
neckties, and counterfeit french per- 

My next door neighbor said he learned 
more about love and patience toward 
one's fellow man in post office lines dur- 
ing Christmas than he did any other time 
of the year. Christmas shopping on a 
tight budget can be a lesson in humility, 
will power, and joy. 

Families that are honest and relaxed 
find that the commercially generated 
atmosphere of good will hinders them 
none at all in their celebration of Christ- 
mas. God works in wonderous ways still, 
even among assemble-it-yourself toys. 

To those that fear Christmas is being 
prostituted by the almighty dollar, I 
suggest that it is remarkable and beauti- 
ful that Christmas is publicly praised at 

I know that in our society what's im- 
portant to people and what concerns 
them deeply whether it's cancer or get- 
rich-quick schemes, patriotism or relig- 
ion, it will be talked about and exploited. 

If Christmas becomes for some people 
primarily a subject for commercials, at 
least God is getting equal time with 
toothpaste. If people didn't care, he 
wouldn't even get that. 

In good taste or bad, by your stand- 
ards or mine, the fact of Christ, the tid- 
ings of love and peace for human nature 
are announced everywhere. It is still 
true that he who has ears to hear will 
hear! ! ! 

— Sharon Matthews 

lights, the ribbons, the candles, 
the gifts, or the greeting cards — 
but the incarnation of the Son of 

This then is the Christmas 
story, Dr. Hoffmann tells us. And 
what a story it is! "The Son of 
God made man — a man like any 
other man, hemmed in by life, 
not the master of His own soul. . . 
If there is any difference between 
Jesus Christ and us who are men 
like Him, it is this: He took it all 
obediently, willingly, gladly! For 
us He lived the life of a servant, 
for us He died the death of a 

slave. Because He did it all for 
us, the Father has given Him a 
name that is above every name. 

"The Son of God was made 
man. This is the heart of the 
faith the apostles invited people 
of their time to hear." 

And as everyone pauses and 
reflects upon Christmas for new 
meaning for today, the story is 
told again, "not as a beautiful 
legend from the distant past, but 
as the good news of what really 
happened when Jesus was born. 
For the whole world is changed 
because Jesus was born!"

.f On Campus 


(By the author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys!", 
"Dobie Gillis," etc.) 


I know how busy you are-studying, going to class, help- 
ing old grads find their dentures after Homecoming— but, 
hark, the Yuletide is almost upon us and it's time we 
turned our thoughts to Christmas shopping. 

We'll start with the hardest gift problem of all : what to 
give the man who has everything. Well sir, here are some 
things I'll bet he doesn't have : 1) A dentist's chair. 2) A 
Mach number. 3) A street map of Perth, Australia. 4) 
Fifty pounds of chicken fat. 5) A pack of Personna Super 
Stainless Steel Blades. 

"What?" you exclaim, your eyebrows leaping in wild 
incredulity. "The man who has everything doesn't have 
Personna Super Stainless Steel Blades ? What arrant non- 
sense!" you scoff, making a coarse gesture. 

But I insist. The man who has everything doesn't have 
Personna because everyone in the dorm is always borrow- 
ing them. And small wonder ! Wouldn't you be there with 
an empty razor and a supplicating sidle if you heard some- 
body had super-blades that were super-sharp and super- 
durable ; that scrape not, neither do they nick ; that shave 
you easily and breezily, quickly and slickly, scratchlessly 
and matchlessly ; that come both in Double-Edge style and 
Injector style ? Of course you would ! 

So here is our first gift suggestion. If you know a man 
who shaves with Personna, give him a safe. 

Next let us take up the thorny problem of buying gifts 
when you have no money. Well sir, there are many won- 
derful gifts which cost hardly anything. A bottle of good 
clear water, for example, is always welcome. A nice smooth 
rock makes a charming paperweight. In fact, one Christ- 
mas back in my own college days, these are exactly the 
gifts I gave a beauteous coed named Norma Glebe. I took 
a rock, a bottle of water, a bit of ribbon, and attached a 
card with this tender sentiment : 

Here's some water 

And here's a rock. 

I love you, daughter, 

Around the clock. 

Norma was so moved, she seized the rock, smashed the 
bottle, and plunged the jagged edge into my sternum. 

Here now is a lovely gift for an American History major 
-a bronze statuette of Millard Fillmore with a clock in 
the stomach. (Mr. Fillmore, incidentally, was the only 
American president with a clock in his stomach. James K. 
Polk had a stem-winder in his head and William Henry 
Harrison chimed the quarter-hour, but only Mr. Fillmore 
of all our chief executives had a clock in his stomach. 
Franklin Pierce had a sweep second hand and Zachary 
Taylor had 17 jewels and Martin Van Buren ticked but, I 
repeat, Mr. Fillmore and Mr. Fillmore alone had a clock 
in his stomach. Moreover, Mr. Fillmore was the first presi- 
dent with power steering. No wonder they called him 
"Old Hickory!") 

But I digress. Returning to Christmas gifts, here's one 
that's sure to please— a gift certificate from the American 
Society of Chiropractors. Accompanying each certificate 
is this fetching little poem : 

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, 

Joyous sacro-Uiac! 

May your spine forever shine, 

Blessings on your aching back! 

May your lumbar ne'er groiv number, 

May your backbone ne'er dislodge, 

May your caudal never dawdle, 

Joyeux Noel! Heureux massage!

And greetings of the season from the m-ikers of 
Personna Super Stainless Steel Blades, Double-Edge or 
Injector, and from Personna'' s partner in shaving lux- 
ury, Burma-Shave, regular or menthol.

Coaching Job Given To Gossett; 
Clayton Becomes Full-Time AD 

Glenn Gossett, defensive coach 
at Southern Methodist University, 
has been named to replace Jack 
Clayton as head football coach. 
After serving 10 years as the 
chief grid tutor, Clayton asked to 
be relieved of his coaching duties 
in order to devote full attention 
to his duties as athletic director. 

Gossett will also serve as assist- 
ant athletic director when he re- 
ports to "Demonland" following 
SMU's Cotton Bowl battle with 

"Taking over a team that has 
just completed a perfect season 
will call for a lot of work, but I'd 
rather have a winner than a 
loser," Gosset acknowledged. 

"Northwestern has a fine ath- 
letic program and I'm anx- 
ious to get to work there," he fur- 
ther added. 

A native of Hot Springs, Ark., 
Gossett has been assistant foot- 
ball and track coach at SMU since 

An outstanding athlete at Mal- 
vern, Ark., High School, Gossett 
received his bachelor's degree 
from Northeast Louisiana State, 
where he was captain of the foot- 
ball team for two years and also 
starred in basketball and base- 

Gossett, 38, was awarded his 
master's degree from Northwest- 
ern in 1957 and has done work to- 
ward his doctorate at the Univer- 
sity of Kentucky and the Univer- 
sity of Arkansas. 

After graduation from North- 
east, Gossett spent two years in 
the U.S. Army. He was a 1st Lieu- 
tenant in the Military Police 

In 1955, he went to Homer 
High School as assistant football 
and head track coach. Two years 
later, Gossett became head coach 
at Homer and developed a team 
that carved a spot for Gossett and 
Homer High School in the state's

gridiron history books. 

Labeled the Iron Men, the 1957 
Homer squad rolled to an 11-2-1 
record after finishing with a 
1-91 mark in 1956. The team, 
made up of only 19 men, lost in 
the Class AA state championship 

In 1958, Gossett guided Homer 
to a tie for the District 1-AA 
championship with a 7-3-1 record. 

Gossett started the track pro- 
gram at Homer in 1955 and won 
the district championship in 1956. 
His 1957 cinder squad finished 
second in the state in class AA. 

Three of Gossett's Iron Men 
went on to Louisiana State Uni- 
versity and were starters on the 
Tiger squad. Tackle Fred Miller 
won All-American honors at LSU, 
and Ray Wilkins and Bobby Flur- 
ry were defensive starters for the 

John Odom, G.W. Zachary and 
Kenneth Hood, other members 
of the Homer team, played their 
collegiate football at Northwest- 

Gossett's success at Homer won 
him District Coach of the Year 
honors and a special award at the 
1958 Ark-La-Tex Sports Awards 
Banquet in Shreveport. 

In 1959, Gossett moved to East- 
ern Kentucky as assistant football 
and head track coach. 

He got his start in the South- 
west Conference in 1961 when he 

became defensive coach of the 
Arkansas freshman team. The 
1961 Arkansas frosh went through 
the season unbeaten and gave up 
only one touchdown. Gossett also 
performed scouting duties for 
Coach Frank Broyles' Razorbacks. 

In charge of the defensive inter- 
ior line at SMU since 1962, Goss- 
ett helped guide the Mustangs to 
an 8-2 record this season and a 
berth in the Cotton Bowl. SMU 
was second in rushing defense in 
the Southwest Conference this 
season and was first in overall de- 
fense last year. 

Four of the five starting inter- 
ior lineman Gossett coached this 
season at SMU won All-Southwest 
Conference honors. They were 
tackle Ronnye Medlen, guard 
John Lagrone, an All-American, 
and linebackers Billy Bob Stewart 
and Jerry Griffin. 

Nine PEM Seniors 
Given Recognition 

The nine graduating seniors of 
the Physical Education Majors 
Club were honored at a Christ- 
mas banquet at the Broadmoor 
Resturant last Monday night. 

They were : Carol Adkins, Janie 
Armstrong, Maxine Doucet, Bon- 
nie Luke, Sandra Domingue, Judy 
Whitworth, Betty Morgan, Velma 
Walpole, and Shirley Hillman. 

Seven Players Make All-League Team; 
Dodd, Clayton Get Individual Awards 

The Louisiana Sports Writers 
Association broke tradition and 
voted a defensive player "Back 
of the Year". 

Al Dodd, three times All-GSC 
and twice All-American as a de- 
fensive back received the award. 
Jack Clayton received all but 
five of the eighteen votes for the 
"Coach of the Year" title. 

Dick Reding, an All-GSC selec- 
tion, has been chosen to play in 
the Senior Bowl, Jan. 7, at Mobile, 
Ala. Reding was a future draft 
choice of the Washington Red- 
skins last year. The big Demon 
end will, of course, be on the side 
of the South. 

Six other Demons joined Dodd 
and Clayton on the scribes' dream 
team for 1966. End Dick Reding, 
guard Eddie Mittelbronn, quarter- 
back Malcolm Lewis, defensive 
end David Lovich, middle guard 
Gerald Malley and punter Shelley 
Dickie all made the elite club. 

Dodd, an exciting player who 
electrified NSC fans with long 
punt and kickoff returns and pass 
interceptions during his four year 
college career, edged out Lewis 
and fullback Carol Breaux (Mc- 
Neese) for the honor. 

Both Lewis and Dodd were 
unanimous choices by the sports 

David Poche of McNeese was 
triply honored by being given a 
spot at the tackle position on both 
the offensive and the defensive 
units and by being named "Line- 
man of the Year". 

Clayton, who guided a dark 
horse Demon team to a perfect 
9-0 year and a number one nation- 
al ranking, has a 17-year coaching 
record at Western Kentucky and 
Northwestern in which his teams 
have won 108 games, lost 68 and 
tied four. 

Dodd, Lewis, Reding and Lovich 
had earlier been named to the 
GSC coaches' team.

(Continued from page 1) 

streets onto the Seine and crossed 
over the Pont Royal, my heart 
was overwhelmed by the beauty 
of the fascinating city. 

At any time, in any season, the 
views along the Seine are ex- 
quisite, whether it be in the 
morning when the spire of Sainte 
Chapelle or the towers of Notre 
Dame are outlined against the 
delicate rose and blue of the sky 
or in spring with a walk along 
the quais where the artists are 
painting and the wash is on the 
line of the houseboats along the 
Seine. But on a cold, misty, late 
afternoon at Christmas time, I 
was filled with such an inner 
quietude that events seemed to 
have stopped as if to give respite. 
There was an enjoyment, a peace, 
a satisfaction in the present, with- 
out news from home, with none 
of the usual Christmas obliga- 
tions, in a world so far removed

from my usual habits as to be al- 
most a dream. As I walked on by 
the Louvre into the rue de Rivoli, 
I was brought back to the ma- 
terial side of life by the gaiety 
of this street with its hundreds 
of little, busy shops. However, 
they are so filled with gewgaws, 
the trifles that delight tourists, 
that I hurried on into the rue 
Faubourg St. Honore, which is to 
me the most exquisite shopping 
street in all modern Paris. Here 
are the expensive shops and here 
are windows with French decor at 
the height of perfection. One 
might see in one window the most 
exquite hand-made boutonnieres, 
lovely little bouquets for the coat 
lapel, in another window unique 
dolls, mice dressed as men and 
women and made of linen. Many 
famous dress shops are in this 
same neighborhood. 

In this walk I came upon fre- 
quent flowers stalls in the streets 
and I was startled by the beauty 
of the multicolored display 
against the grayness of the city's 
walls, and in the midst the flow- 
ers stood out as if the sun had 
suddenly broken through the 
clouds and given them radiance.

pouring upon the streets. The 
window displays of dolls are a 
wonder to grownups as well as to 
children and they crowd around 
the windows in such great num- 
bers that policemen are stationed 
there to regulate the flow of 

City Unchangeable 

In spite of the American in- 
fluence, Paris is still itself and 
nothing can change it so that it 
ceases to be the fascinating and 
interesting city it has always 
been. One custom which remains 
unchanged is the "reveillon" or 
supper which follows the mid- 
night mass Christmas Eve and 
New Year's Eve. But with all the 
fascination and charms of the 
great city, the backbone of Paris 
and of all of France is the land. 
The gracious living for which it 
has always been renowned has 
sprung from the country life. And 
the country man has remained 
largely untouched. 

Even eight or ten miles from 
the city can be found peasant life 
with custom centuries old. Each 
Christmas in a picturesque 
church not far from Paris a tra- 
ditional cermony is held. Mass 
is said by the old cure of the vil- 
lage who has lovingly partici- 
pated for 40 years.

opened and the cortege pene- 
trates the church, preceded by 
the oldest member who carries 
the lamb in a basket garlanded 
with flowers and ribbons. During 
the singing of the ancient hymn 
they make twice the tour of the 
church, each carrying a candle 
and a beribboned staff. The priest 
then blesses the lamb which is 
returned to the flock as a mascot. 
Then all present take part in the 
midnight mass. 

Though the great metropolitan 
centers may ape the customs of 
other lands, so long as the out- 
of-way places fail to take on the 
commercial and material aspects 
of the season, there may be hope 
of retaining the great spirit of

Union Games Area Invaded By Fun-Seekers 

STRIKING or sparing or just plain throwing packed-up cares and woe down the gutter has to be one of 
the latest groovy methods of passing the time in the new Student Union. An eight lane bowling alley 
is just one of the brand new facilities in the greatly improved student games area of the Union. The 
sound of ping pong matches, smashing pool balls, shuffling cards, and the low murmur of leisure 
fill the air in the Union's game area. 

By Gail Dooley 

Student Union activities are 
now in full swing with the open- 
ing of the games area. 

Located in the games area are 
eight lanes of bowling, ten bil- 
lard tables, and ping pong tables. 
Card rooms are also available. All 
equipment is furnished. 

Hours of operation for the 
games area will be from 8-10, 
Monday — Saturday and all stu- 
dents — especially the women stu- 
dents — are urged to take advan- 
tage of these facilities. 

Prices of the games are as fol- 
lows: bowling-35c per game, 10c 
for shoe rental; pool-70c per hour 
plus 10c for each additional per- 
son over two; ping pong-25c an 
hour per table. 

Bowling classes will be offered 
through the physical education 

department next semester. And 
it is hoped that college leagues 
will soon be formed. 

Students who are interested in 
volunteer work in any area of 
the Union can pick up an appli- 
cation form in the Program Di-

The Military Science Depart- 
ment has announced that 30 Jan- 
ment has announced that Janu- 
ary 30, 1967 isi the deadline for 
those persons desiring to apply 
for enrollment in the new two- 
year ROTC Advanced Course pro- 

The ROTC vitalization act of 
1964 extends the advantages of 
ROTC to students in four-year 
colleges who have not partici- 
pated in the ROTC program dur- 
ing their first two years. 

A basic six-week summer train- 
ing period after the sophomore 
year takes the place of the basic 
course required of students in 
the traditional four-year program. 

When a student with two years 
of college has been selected for 
the new two-year program and 
has successfully completed the 
basic summer training conducted 
in June and July at Fort Benning, 
Georgia, he is eligible for the 
ROTC Advanced Course in his 
junior and senior years and upon 
successful completion is offered 
an officer's commission. 

To qualify the student must 
apply prior to January 30, 1967 
for enrollment during his sopho- 
more year in college and meet 
the requirements for selection 
before attending the basic summer 
training period. These require- 
ments are: Complete the ROTC 
questionnaire, pass an army apti- 
tude test covering reading com- 
prehension and math, pass a 
qualifying army physical exam- 
ination and be selected for par- 
ticipation following an interview 
by a board composed of army 
officers, cadet ROTC officers and 
college officials from Northwest- 
ern State College. 

A cadet receives approximately 
$1200.00 for the two years in the 
Advanced Course. In addition, 
he gets free uniforms, text books, 
training and experience in the 
art of organizing, motivating and 
leading others. 

January 30, 1967, is the dead- 
line. If you are interested in ap- 
plying for enrollment in the new 
two-year ROTC program, contact 
any one at the ROTC Armory on 
campus or call Ext 341.

New Seismograph Fish Hatchery To Reveal More Of The Fish 

Equipment Senses 
Earth Movements 

By Jim Hawthorne 

It may sound fishy, but the city 
of Natchitoches has itself quite 
a catch. 

The Federal Fish Hatchery, 

located in Natchitoches on High- 
way One South, is being expand- 
ed and improved with money 
specially appropriated by Con- 
gress last spring. 

Northwestern recently acquired 
a seismograph from the United 
States Coast and Geodetic Survey 
to function in recording earth 
tremors in Louisiana and the ad- 
jacent states on an indefinite 

The man responsible for ac- 
quiring the $4,500 device is As- 
sistant Professor of Geology John 
W. Waskom, who will head the 
research aided by Ronnie Braud, 
a senior geography major, and 
Walter Stiles, a senior geology 

Mr. Waskom states that the de- 
vice will not only be used to do 
research on local and regional 
tremors, but will aid in the re- 
porting of world-wide quakes 

The station will operate as one 
of the more than 1,000 seismic 
stations around the world after it 
reaches its final destination in 
this area, the Natural History 

Northwestern is the first state 
institution in Louisiana to have 
Loyola of New Orleans also has a 
seismograph. The nearest state 
supported institution that has a 
seismograph is the University of 
Mississippi at Oxford, Miss. 

The most obvious addition is 
the beautiful new aquarium being 
built for observation of fish. This 
structure, costing more than 
$157,000, will house 20 large 

MEMBERS of Dwight Connelly's advanced reporting class were so intent in their recent inspection of 
the Natchitoches Fish Hatchery that they just didn't have time for an about-face for the camera. The 
class inspected the facilities which are under improvement at the moment and produced sample fea- 
tures on the project. 

tanks containing many types of 
fish native to Louisiana. 

Roy Figuered, fisheries biolo- 
gist, explains that over 12,600 
visitors toured the Natchitoches 
facility last year. He said one of 
the biggest complaints of these 
tourists was that they could not 
see the fish. This is because the 
fish used for breeding purposes 
were kept in deep ponds. 

Figuered said that, with the 
completion of the aquarium, visi- 
tors will be able to view species 
of fish in the modern, central 
heated and air conditioned stru- 
ture all year. 

Dr. George Ware, professor of 
biology at NSC, is in charge of 
landscaping the aquarium 
grounds. Dr. Ware is currently 
chairman of the campus beautifi- 
cation committee at Northwest- 

The aquarium is slated to be 
opened to the public in February 
Tours will be available free of 

The hatchery in Natchitoches, 
one of only 28 in the Southern 
states, covers more than 98 acres 
of land with 46 acres of ponds. 
This makes possible the produc- 
tion of 3 to 6 million bass, blue 
gill, catfish and perch each year. 

These young fish are supplied 
free to many private ponds for 
initial stocking of game fish for 
recreational activities.

A Lifetimes Journey To Adventure 

This paper is printed oy the Graphic 
Aits Division of the Industrial Educa- 
tion Department of Northwestern. 

By Diane Nickerson 

She's a dainty, petite woman, 
truly the "southern lady" with 
her quiet, warm charm and hint 
of a southern accent. Even her 
name Corinne Ryland, which has 
a certain poetic sound, expresses 
quiteness and warmth. 

A French and Latin instructor 
in NSC's language department, 
Mrs. Ryland who calls the Blue 
Grass of Lexington, Ky., her 
home, has lived in such places as 
West Point, Montreal, Pippa Pas- 
ses, Ky., Paris, Nice and Seville, 

The interests of this woman are 
just as varied as her travels, 
she's been a homemaker, a teach- 
er, a student at the Sorbonne and 
feature writer for one or the 
nation's top newspaper. 

If this isn't enough to give 

you an inkling of her diversity 
here's more... she's met the leg- 
endary author Rudyard Kipling, 
lived a year on the French Ri- 
viera and has ridden fourteen 
miles mule-back into the back 
woods of Kentucky to teach 
French and Latin at a small col- 

It's difficult to know where to 
begin telling the story of Mrs. Ry- 
land and her life, but perhaps it 
would be best to start at the Uni- 
versity ef Kentucky. 

The university looms very 
large in Mrs. Ryland's life for 
it was here that she received her 
bachelor and master's degrees in 
French and where she met and 
married her husband, the late 
Dr. Hobart Ryland, a well-known 
author and professor of French 
at the university. 

The Rylands lived in Lexington 
for many years while Dr. Ryland 
taught at the university and 
Mrs. Ryland served as a special 
feature writer for the Louisville- 
Courrier Journal. Their home life 
in the Kentucky city was inter- 
rupted several times when they 
and their young daughter packed 
bag and baggage and moved to 
France where they lived a total 
of five years and studied lang- 
uage, researched and wrote. 

It was during this time in Fran- 
ce that Mrs. Ryland attended the 
Sorbonne and the Alliance Fran- 
caise in Paris and the university 
in Nice, France. She and her 
husband also journeyed south to 
Spain where Dr. Ryland attended 
the university in Seville and 
wrote in Spanish a book on 

Commenting on an event which 
took place while she was in Spain, 
Mrs. Ryland said, "Holy Week in 
Seville is unforgettable. The peo- 
ple are extremely religious and 
line the streets in fervent wor- 
ship. When the lovely floats pass 
by they kneel in prayer. Some 
burst into chants. A gentleman 
in a moment of fervor threw his 
hat into the air. To his horror 
and that of the crowd it struck 
the face of the Virgin. 

"There was a cry of anguish at 
the sarilege and the crowd was 
about to seize him when he jump- 
ed upon a cafe table and shouted, 
'For atonement I'll go all the way 
to the cathedral on my knees.' He 
followed behind the float and 
when he arrived they had to take 
him to the hospital. His knees

Ibsen Play Announced For Spring 

Rehearsals are now in progress 
in the Little Theatre for Henrik 
Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler," a drama 
in four acts to be produced Feb. 
8, 9, and 10. The play is under 
the direction of Dr. Edna West, 
director of the College Theatre. 

Hedda Gabler will be played by 
guest actress Mrs. Vera Graham. 
In supporting roles will be Gor- 

don Parker as George Tesman, 
Marc Pettaway as Ejlert Lovborg, 
Barbara Gresham as Mrs. Elv- 
sted, Alice Anne Conner as Miss 
Juliana Tesman, John Wood as 
Judge Brack, and Karen Dowty 
as Bertha, servant to the Tes- 

The play concerns a young 
woman who marries to avoid 

simple boredom and in doing so 
unwittingly brings her fiery past 
to light. The realization of what 
she is and what she faces drives 
Hedda Gabler to a stunning cli- 
max that epitomizes Ibsen's so- 
cial philosophy. 

The drama is under the techni- 
cal direction of Mr. Frank Ma- 
gers, technical director of the 
College Theatre. 

Spring Students 

All students who plan to enroll 
for the Spring Semester should 
pick up a Trial Schedule Card 
in the Office of the Registrar 
and then see their advisers to pre- 
pare their spring schedules. This 
is to be completed before the be- 
ginning of final examinations. 


Letters to the editors and staff 
on any subject relevant to college 
life are encouraged, and should 
be in good taste and signed. At 
no time will letters be printed 
without the signature of the cor- 

Editor's Farewell 

With this issue of the newspaper, the current editor, Danny Gayer 
terminates his service to the Sauce. Gayer plans to enter Tulane in 
the Spring for a Master's in English. His wife, Sally, will enhance 
what he calls, "a bohemian joie de vivre in the Vieux Carre for a 
tinkling time." Gayer and his staff will be replaced before the next 
issue of the paper in the Spring. 

DAVIS PLAYERS . . . Recently initiated into the honor drama group on campus were (I. to r.) Tom 
Walker, Barbara Russell, Marc Pettaway, Jim O'Quinn, Barbara Gresham, Kathy Dougherty, and 
Susie Chancey. In order to attain membership in the honor group, these persons compiled a certain 
amount of hours working on and off stage for the college theatre.

famous author in the lobby of a 
hotel in Aix. 

Mrs. Ryland, while in France, 
was regularly sending feature art- 
icles back to the Courier- Journal 
on such subjects as the "U.S.'s 
Sixth fleet in Ville Franch," and 
"Easter in Spain." She also wrote 
many features for the Lexington 
Herald-Leader while she was a- 
broad and in the states. 

Much of their stay in France 
was devoted to research on the 
Marquis de Sade, the man who 
gave birth to the word "sadism." 
Dr. Ryland wrote a biography, 
which has not been published as 
of yet, on the life of the Marquis, 
one of the most unusual figures 
in French history. 

Mrs. Ryland was asked if this 
sojourn in France with her hus- 
band was the first time that she 
had traveled to the country. She 
answered, "Oh, No!! I went to 
Paris in 1929 when I was quite 
young, 'an innocent abroad.' The 
Paris of '29 was quite different 
from that of 1967. The most not- 
able change is the pace of life, 
everything is faster and oh, the 
traffic, 'formible.' " 

Not all of the interesting 
events in Mrs. Ryland's life occur- 
red while she was in France, in 
fact her most unusual adventure 
took place in the U.S. 

As a youthful adventurer in 
1931, this little French teacher 
took a fourteen mile trip on mule- 
back through the "creek beds, 
quick sand and hills of southeast- 
ern Kentucky" to reach the moun- 
tain school, Caney Junior College, 
in Pippa Passes (named for 
Browning's poem). The college, 
which has since become a jun- 
ior college of importance, was 
founded by Alice Lloyd of Bos- 
ton, Mass. 

Mrs. Ryland called Pippa Pass- 
es, "land of do without," for there 
was "no running water, no tele- 
Phone, no movies, no radio, no 

corner drugstore." Here she 
taught Latin, French and Ger- 
man to the young men and wo- 
men so eager for an education. 
"But no where," says Mrs. Ry- 
land, "have I felt more exhilira- 
tion. Truly in those mountains I 
shared the feelings of Pippa, 
'God's in his heaven and all's 
right with the world.' " 

During World War II, Dr. Ry- 
land was commissioned into the 
army as a Lt. Colonel and he and 
his family moved to West Point, 
N.Y., where he taught French at 
the military institution. 

In recalling her stay at West 
Point, Mrs. Ryland remarked that 
she and her husband met many 
young cadets who are quite fam- 
ous today. "I remember two ca- 
dets that we knew very well and 
whose fathers were important 
figures in the army at that time. 
One of the boys was young John 
Eisenhower, the son of General 
Eisenhower and the other was 
the son of General George Pat- 

Mrs. Ryland's husband died in 
1960. Even though she never 
taught during her married life, 
this versitle woman decided to go 
back teaching after his death. 
After making this decision, she 
had one other important question 
to decide, "Where should I 

Mrs. Ryland selected Northwest- 
ern and currently is in the midst 
of her fourth year of teaching 
French and Latin. When asked 
how she happened to choose NSC, 
she said, "I'd heard so many 
wonderful stories about Louisiana 
and I loved the history and charm 
of the state, too, so I selected it 
over my other possible choice, a 
school in Missouri." 

Although Mrs. Ryland is no 
longer writing regularly for the 
Louisville paper, she is still very 
much interested in the literary 
field. In fact, she is currently en- 
gaged in writing two books. One, 
a story of her own life revolving 
around her mother, is entitled, 
When Fanny Comes. 

She is also reworking the book, 
Obsessed, the story of the Mar- 
quis de Sade which her husband 
had started and completed but 
never published. 

When asked about her plans 
ifor the future, NSC'fe unique 

language teacher said, "When I 
retire, I hope to resume courses; 
toward my Ph. D. at the Univer- 
sity of Kentucky. The U of Kj 
offers a unique program whereby 
a 'senior citizen' may take any 
course in the university without 

As if working on her Ph. D. 
isn't enough, she also plans to 
combine her studying with "a few 
visits abroad and gardening."

Tribe Takes Conference Contest 
From Demon's By 79-71 Score 

SOPHOMORE GUARD Bill Ragland is running third in the scoring 
race behind the Demon aces, David Clark and Jim Wyatt. The 6' 3" 
eager is averaging 8.3 points per outing. 

By Bob Ardoin 

Northeast handed the Demons 
their first conference loss at Pra- 
ther Coliseum Wednesday night 
as they led the home team 
throughout the game and then 
held on to finally manage a 79-71 

Top shooter for the Tribe was 
the center, Paul Thompson, who 
scored 25 points. Also hitting in 
double figures were Buster Toms 
and Bill Snelling who managed 12 

Glynn Saulters hauled down 10 
rebounds to lead the Indians in 
that department. 

The Indians made 40.5 percent 
of their field goals and 76 per- 
cent of their free throws. 

On the other hand, the Dem- 
ons never could pull the lead 
away from the surging Redskins. 

Big James Wyatt topped the 
Purple and White in the scoring 
department with 23 markers. 
David Clark was a close second 
with 21 points. 

Other point contributors were 
James Peffer with 9, Bill Ragland

New Pigskin Coach 

Gossett To Employ T 

by Kenny Baker 

Northwestern's new grid coach 
Glenn Gossett has a rough task 
ahead of him in 1967 in bidding 
for a repeat performance of a 
perfect season and filling the 
shoes of the GSC Coach of the 
Year, but if he doesn't succeed 
in meeting the challenge, it'll be 
the first time. 

Gossett's coaching career goes 
back to 1955 and involves several 
high schools and colleges in four 
states, but at each school he 
coached, whether it be track or 
football, his record is impressive. 

Gossett arrived on the NSC 
campus Wednesday to assume the 
duties of his new post and im- 
mediately went on a tour of the 
campus, taking a lengthey stop- 
over at Demon Stadium. Later 
that afternoon he was the guest 
at a press party in the Student 
Union Building. Sports editors 
and representatives from Alexan- 
dria, Shreveport and Monroe 
newspapers and television sta- 
tions were present along with 
Stanley Galloway, GSC Athletic 

Pleased about the chance of 
coaching at Northwestern, Gossett 
told newsmen, "I'd rather be as- 
sociated with a winner than a 
loser any day, but the record 
(nine wins, no losses) never en- 
tered into my decision; I con- 
sidered it a fine opportunity." 

Giving up his position as head 
track coach and defensive foot- 
ball coach at Southern Methodist 
University, Gossett will replace 
Jack Clayton, who moved up to 
athletic director. Gossett will also 
serve as assistant athletic director 

"The Gulf States Conference is 
one of the most underrated lea- 
gues in the entire nation," said 
Gossett, commenting on the brand 
of football played at NSC. "You 
can get whipped any time you go 
out against a GSC team." 

The new coach got a chuckle 
out of the group when asked about 
the possibility of adding or drop- 
ping any of the '66 opponents in 
next year's schedule. "There's 
about five GSC teams we'd like 
to drop if we possibly could," he 
quipped. "And I think a GSC 
school would make a fine repre- 
sentative in post-season play-off 

Gossett plans to run a double 
monster defense at NSC next 
season, "based, of course, on 
variations in the duties of the 
boys depending on how well they 

perform at their positions." 

He will also employ a tandem 
and an "I" offense. "This was 
the same type of offense that 
worked so well for Arkansas, 
Texas and Texas Tech this year." 
Gossett said. 

Concerning the coaching staff 
which will be assisting him next 
year, Gossett stated that Gene 
Knecht and John Ropp will be 
retained. Gossett considers them 
both excellent coaches and stated 
that it would be a tremendous 
credit to the team to have them 
remain. "They're so good you hate 
to turn either one of those guys 
out to pasture," he said. 

It was also learned that an ad- 
ditional coaching job has been 
offered by Northwestern and that 
the announcement will be made 
next week. Expressing his feelings 
concerning the offer, Gossett did 
say that he hoped the person con- 
tacted would accept the position. 
"I know him to be a fine and 
capable coach, and his acceptance 
would make my task that much 

Gossett first gained recognition 
as an outstanding coach while he 
was head football coach at Homer 
High School in 1957. It was in 
that year that his famed Iron Men 
rolled to an 11-2-1 record after 
finishing 1-9-1 the year before. 
Losing in the Class AA state 
championship finals, the squad 
consisted of only 19 men. 

He later went on to be head 
track coach and assistant foot- 

the rebound category with a total 
of 13 for the night. He was fol- 
lowed by Clark with 9, and Bill 
Ragland and Delbert Thompson 
with 5 each. 

Team statistics revealed that 
the Demon made 42 percent of 
their field goals, and 84.6 percent 
of their free throws. 

The Northeast cagers made 19 
of 25 free throws while the De- 

Senior Bowl Game 
For Dodd, Reding 

Dick Reding and Al Dodd will 
perform before a national tele- 
vision audience in the Annual 
Senior Bowl game tomorrow at 
Mobile, Ala. 

The Senior Bowl pits 30 of the 
best college and university foot- 
ball players from the South 
against an equal number from 
above the Mason-Dixon Line. 

Reding, who was a future 
draft choice of the Washington 
Redskins, might start at flaker- 
back instead of his usual position 
at tight end. 

Dodd will play the safety posi- 
tion for the southern squad. 

ball coach at Eastern Kentucky 
from 1959-1961. Serving as fresh- 
man football coach at the Uni- 
versity of Arkansas for one year, 
Gossett spent four years prior to 
his Northwestern appointment at 

He's no stranger on the NSC 
campus though. Hailing from Hot 
Springs, Arkansas, Gossett was 
awarded a masters degree from 
Northwestern in 1957. He has also 
done work on his doctorate at the 
Universities of Arkansas and Ken- 

When asked about his predict- 
ions for next season, the new De- 
mon boss commented, "My only 
concern right now is our first 
game in 1967. We're gonna play 
'em one at a time. We'll worry 
about each team when we come 
up against them." 

Gossett also expressed satis- 
faction with the early recruiting 
done by Northwestern. He praised 
Coaches Knecht and Ropp who 
"have signed some of the finest 
talent in the state," said Gossett. 

Coach Gossett is anxious to 
start his first season here. He 
might not have a perfect season, 
and he might not be Coach of the 
Year, but when the stats are in 
and the games are added up, I 
think he'll be ahead of whoever 
is in second place.

In Progress 
For 'Messiah! 

The Northwestern State College 
Chorus began work this week on 
George Frederick Hendel's fam- 
ous oratorio "Messiah," which the 
group will perform with the Nat- 
chitoches-Northwestern Sympho- 
ny Orchestra March 21. 

College students and towns- 
people interested in singing with 
the chorus for this performance 
are invited to contact Dr. Gordon 
Flood, NSC choral director, im- 
mediately for rehearsal informa- 

This performance will mark the 
second of three concerts to be 
presented this year by the Nat- 
chitoches-Northwestern Sympho- 
ny Society, presently in its first 
year of operation. Four soloists 
have been engaged for this Easter 
production. They are Jasmine 
Egan, Shreveport soprano; Jua- 
nita Teal Peters, contralto, and 
Joey Evans, tenor, from Denton, 
Texas; and James Ford, bass, 
from Natchitoches. 

The chorus will be prepared by 
Dr. Flood and the performance 
will be conducted by Dr. Joseph 
B. Carlucci, musical director of 
the Natchitoches-Northwestern 
Symphony Society. 

Letters to Potpourri 

Students to Choose 'Prof of Ye ar' 

The Potpourri, in initial efforts 
to create what its editors hope 
will become an annual tradition, 
is looking to the student body to 
elect the "Potpourri Professor of 
the Year," according to yearbook 
editor Wayne Meachum. 

In order to vote for a favorite 
professor a student must write a 
letter to the Potpourri giving the 
professor's name, the course in 
which the student had (or has) 
the professor, and briefly state 
why he thinks the professor wor- 
thy of the honor. 

"We realize that any student 
could stop by a voting booth or 
ballot box and write down a pro- 
fessor's name without giving it 
much thought, "Meachum said. 
"However, if a professor has im- 
pressed a student enough to in- 
spire him to write a letter favor- 
ing that professor for such an 
honor, this is the kind of pro- 
fessor we're looking for." 

The professor receiving the 
most letters in his favor will win. 
Rules governing the contest 

(1) The student who votes for 
a certain professor must presently 
be enrolled in a class taught by 

that profeessor of have been in 
such a class in the fall semester 
of 1966 (last semester). 

(2) L e 1 1 e r s (or postcards) 
should be mailed or delivered to 
President Kilpatrick's office in 
the Administration Building. Each 
letter must contain the name of 
the professor for whom the stu- 
dent is voting, the name of the 

course in which the student had 
(or has) the professor, a brief 
statement as to why the student 
is voting for the professor, and 
the student's signature. 

(3) Only one letter per stu- 
dent is allowed and all letters 
must be in President Kilpatrick's 
office by 4 p.m. Wednesday. Feb. 
15, 1967. 

(4) Any instructor, assistant, 
associate, or full professor or de- 
partment head who is employed 
full time by Northwestern State 
College and teaches college- 
approed courses is eligible for 
the award. 

The winner will be publicly an- 
nounced at the annual Potpourri 
Banquet in April, Meachum said. 

Bookstore Policies Changed; 
Manager Explains Procedures 

(Editor's Note: Prices and re- 
purchasing policies at the campus 
bookstore has recently evoked 
considerable controversy and dis- 
aproval among the students. Here 
Miss Selma Mahfouz, bookstore 
manager, attempts to explain the 
management's point of vieiv.) 

A statement of purpose and ex- 
planations of sales and re- 
purchase policies of the book 
store have been provided Current 
Sauce by Miss Selma Mahfouz, 

The purpose of the book store 

is to serve the students most ef- 
fectively and to earn a profit, 
Miss Mahfouz explained. Since the 
student's interest is so closely re- 
lated to the operations of the book 
store, it is necessary that they be 
informed of certain policies and 
procedures, she said. 

Sales policy for books is cover- 
ed in five points: 

1. All new books are to be sold 

at current retail prices. 

2. Books originally purchased 
as new books will be re-purchased 
at fifty per cent of the sale price, 
if they are to be used again as 

3. Used books will be re-sold at 
three-fourths of the current re- 
tail price. 

4. Re-purchase price of used

A Registration Satire 

It All Started With. A Pencil 


(Editor's note: It has been said 
that a crisis brings out the best 
and the worst in people, and this 
is as true with institutions as with 
individuals — our college, for ex- 
ample. And has there ever been 
a crisis to compare with regi- 
stration? ) 

By Alice Anne Conner and 
Susie Chancey 

Since the year one, NSC stu- 
dents have been brainwashed in- 
to making certain that they ap- 
pear at registration with PENCIL 
in hand. In fact, there were even 
times when armed Blue Keys or 
Purple Jackets were stationed at 
every possible entrance to the 
Coliseum (including tunnels dug 
during the night from Chaplin's 
lake) to frisk any student who 
looked as if he might be carrying 
ball-point pens, India ink, or 

So what happens today when 
the conscientious student appears 
on the scene with pencils stuffed 
into pockets and cuffs and propp- 
ed on ears? Well, just when said 
student has filled out all but the 
last line of his "packet" and is 

about to leap onto the Coliseum 
floor, our registration moderator, 
Dean Nick, with tie askew, am- 
bles over to the lines and mum- 
bles something into the purple 
megaphone about making sure 
you fill out your "packet" in ink. 

Appalied, the disbelieving stu- 
dent timidly raises his hand, after 
frantically disposing of any lead- 
en evidence. "But, sir..." Before 
he has time to utter any syllable 
of protest, the purple megaphone 
cuts into his confusion with a- 
nother, "Any student filling out 
his packet in pencil is automati- 
cally assigned to working break- 
fasts in the cafeteria and enrolled 
in Dr. Phillip's social studies 

Now, completely terrorized, the 
student breaks into a run, bounds 
across Demon Stadium, and falls 
panting at the door of the new 
college bookstore, where he is not 
admited because he doesn't have 
a trial schedule card. 

Then, in the nick of time, David 
Faraldo rounds the corner from 
the Gold Room selling "Vote Fa- 


Dancers Defended In Incident 

raldo" ball-points for half-price. 
After paying the 85, our hero, 
with fresh hope, makes his way 
back to the Coliseum, enchanted 
with student politics. 

Five hours later, after complet- 
ing all the necessary logistics, we 
find the student, harried and beat- 
en, crawling toward the Student 
Union for a glass of Sprite and 
a cold doughnut. Incidentally ex- 
amining his schedule, he notes 
that he has canoeing at the same 
time as geology lab (6-10 p.m. 
Monday and Thursday in Shreve- 
port, with TBA on Wednesday 

Beyond the point of caring, he 
grovels through the post office 
and into the student lounge. The 
NSC Demon Band, hiding behind 
the door, spots him and tears into 
a rousing rendition of "Wild 
Thang", whereupon Dean Fulton 
steps forward and informs him 
that, being the 100th person to 
enter the student lounge since its 
opening last fall, he is awarded 
the key to the Student Union and 
a lifetime supply of Venus No. 3 
Lacilite monogramed pencils.

To The Editor: 

Is not entertainment a form of 
exhibition? In rhetoric, yes! More- 
over, is not a group such as "The 
In Crowd" a form of exhibition? 
Again, the answer defies negation. 

But recently when a large ma- 
jority of students stopped danc- 
ing in order to watch three coup- 
les who were more flashy than 
they, Student Union officials had 
the audacity to stop the dance on 
grounds of exhibitionism by these 

The dance-going student assem- 
blage has known that dancing in 
lewd or suggestive fashion is ex- 
pressly prohibited, but these coup- 
les were not guilty of such. If 
these couples were guilty of any- 
thing, it was of being very impres- 
sive dancers, but since when has 
superiority in a social activity 
been a facet for condemnation? 

These students were not well- 
known by the majority of those 
present; nevertheless, a large ma- 
jority of these students, who just 
minutes before had been enjoy- 
ing watching them dance, express- 
ed their vehemence to these coup- 
les, other students, and the offic- 
ials for the latter's action. 

The three couples were colored. 
This writer cannot comprehend 
why one person has the right to 
embarrass students by making 
them examples merely because 
they, by being excellent dancers, 
attracted attention of students 
less talented.

impossible to place a call from 
one dormitory on the campus of 
NSC to another dormitory with 
any degree of success. 

Someone is paying for the 
phone service, or lack of it, here 
at the college. It is either the 
student when he pays his room 
rent or the taxpayers of Louisi- 
ana. In either case the students 
contribute to the payments. 

A book could be written de- 
scribing the various symptoms of 
our sick phone system here at 
NSC. I think that either adequate 
equipment should be put into 
use or competent service demand- 
ed on the existing system. Plac- 
ing a phone call should be a 
pleasure, not an ordeal.

66 In Review — A Fine Madness 

(Editor's note: A new tele- 
phone system called CENTRAX 
will go into operation in the fall 
of this year on campus. The sys- 
tem will be housed in a special 
new building, and is to be design- 
ed for increased efficiency and 
with possibilities for expansion 
of the college telephone service.) 

1966 was a year of schizophreni- 
a with pizazz, according to the 
University of Kansas Daily Kan- 

It was the year that launched 
the Yellow Submarine, the Kansan 
noted, then almost sank John Len- 

It was the year skirts went up 
and hair came down. Men cheered 
the change, even if it meant girls 
had to roll two feet of hair on 
soup cans. Tom the Peeper never 
had it so good when girls tried 
to sit down in their thigh-high 
mini-skirts. Modesty died an awk- 
ward death. 

And it was the year topless 
clubs spread coast to coast, but 
one club, apparantly unsure that 
the body was really all that 
beautiful, asked patrons to sign 
a statement saying their morals 
weren't being corrupted. 

In passing, it was a good year, 
if you weren't 1-A, afraid of be- 
coming 1-A, or in Vietnam. The 
emphasis was on youth, and adults 
responded. Sometimes this re- 
sponse caused a few lifted eye- 

brows, however. 

Justice William O. Douglas mar- 
ried a 23-year-old college coed, 
Cathleen Hefferman, and Congres- 
sional tongues wagged. Frank 
Sinatra married that 21-year-old 
Peyton Place kid and got a few 
sly winks. The oldsters were act- 
ing like youngsters. 

Using imagination all their own, 
the kids turned the tables. Old 
movies, silent movies, monster 
movies became a fad. The Bogie 
cult came on like gangbusters. 
Even clothing fell into step. 

London mods, short on money 
but rich in imagination, discover- 
ed secondhand stores and the 
Salvation Army look. Girls looked 
like soldiers or sailors or pieces 
of high-fashion tinfoil. Shiny sil- 
ver dresses and accessories be- 
came a New York rage, and wo- 
men wore enough metal to make 
the U.S. Treasury envious. 

It was also the year of the acces- 
sory with a message; lapel but- 
tons sounded the sentiments of 
the moment. Campus wits wore 
buttons proclaiming "Hire the 

morally handicapped," or "Custer 
died for your sins." Then there 
was the button that read, "God is 
not dead; He just doesn't want to 
get involved." 

And was God dead? If he were, 
the controversy over His demise 
generated almost enough heat to 
assure a second coming. 

Like God, folk music went un- 
derground, and a new, homo- 
genized sound — folk rock — rose 
to the surface. Enter musical 
groups with bizarre names and 
bizarre but often beautiful sounds, 
like the Mamas and Papas, Simon 
and Garfunkel. 

And in 1966, Camp didn't really 
die, it just went on the tube. In 
his super-keen Batmobile with 
Robin at his side, Batman roared 
into the vast wasteland and was 
greeted with the biggest howl 
heard in a long time. Everybody 
over age nine knew it was de- 
signed to be High Camp. . .or was 

So for 12 months it went — a 
very fine madness and a kicky 
kind of year. 

Minutes Of SGA Meetings 


The telephone is surely one of 
the most important and useful 
inventions ever to come into uni- 
versal use. Due to rapid elec- 
tronic advances and with the aid 
of satellites it is now possible to 
speak to people on the opposite 
side of the earth by simply dial- 
ing a few digits. I think that 
everyone would agree that this is 
truly remarkable. 

It is equally remarkable that 
in 1967, with men talking from 
space to the earth, it is almost

On Campus 

(By the author of "RaUy Round the Flag, Boys!", 
"Dobie Gillis," etc.) 



It happens every day. A young man goes off to college, 
leaving his home town sweetheart with vows of eternal 
love, and then he finds that he has outgrown her. What, in 
such cases, is the honorable thing to do? 

Well sir, you can do what Crunch Sigafoos did. 

When Crunch left his home in Cut and Shoot, Pa., to go 
off to a prominent midwestern university ( Florida State) 
he said to his sweetheart, a wholesome country lass named 
Mildred Bovine, "My dear, though I am far away in col- 
lege, I will love you always. I take a mighty oath I will 
never look at another girl. If I do, may my eyeballs parch 
and wither, may my viscera writhe like adders, may my 
ever-press slacks go baggy!" 

Then he clutched Mildred to his bosom, flicked some 
hayseed from her hair, planted a final kiss upon her fra- 
grant young skull, and went away, meaning with all his 
heart to be faithful. 

But on the very first day of college he met a coed named 
Irmgard Champerty who was studded with culture like a 
ham with cloves. She knew verbatim the complete works 
of Franz Kafka, she sang solos in stereo, she wore a black 
leather jacket with an original Goya on the back. 

Well sir, Crunch took one look and his jaw dropped and 
his nostrils pulsed like a bellows and his kneecaps turned 
to sorghum. Never had he beheld such sophistication, such 
intellect, such savoir faire. Not, mind you, that Crunch 
was a dolt. He was, to be sure, a country boy, but he had a 
head on his shoulders, believe you me ! Take, for instance, 
his choice of razor blades. Crunch always shaved with 
Personna Super Stainless Steel Blades, and if that doesn't 
show good sense, I am Rex the Wonder Horse. No other 
blade shaves you so comfortably so often. No other blade 
brings you such facial felicity, such epidermal elan. 
Personna Super Stainless Steel Blades take the travail out 
of shaving, scrap the scrape, negate the nick, peel the pull, 
oust the ouch. Furthermore, Personnas are available both 
in double-edge style and in injector style. If you're smart 
—and I'm sure you are, or how'd you get out of high school 
—you'll get a pack of Personnas before another sun has set. 

But I digress. Crunch, as we have seen, was instantly 
smitten with Irmgard Champerty. All day he followed her 
around campus and listened to her talk about Franz Kafka 
and like that, and then be went back to his dormitory and 
found this letter from his home town sweetheart Mildred : 

Dear Crunch : 

Us kids had a keen time yesterday. We went down to 
the pond and caught some frogs. I caught the most of 
anybody. Then we hitched rides on trucks and did lots 
of nutsy stuff like that. Well, 1 must close now because I 
got to whitewash the fence. 

Your friend, 


P.S I know he u> to ride backwards on my skateboard. 

Well sir, Crunch thought about Mildred and then he 
thought about Irmgard and then a great sadness fell upon 
him. Suddenly he knew he had outgrown young, innocent 
Mildred; his heart now belonged to *mart, sophisticated 

Being above all things honorable, he returned forth- 
with to Cut and Shoot, Pa., and looked Mildred straight in 
the eye and said manlily, "I do not love you any more. I 
love another. You can hit me in the stomach all your might 
if you want to!' 

"That's okay, hey',' said Mildred amiably. "I don't love 
you neither. I found a new boy!' 

"What is his name?" asked Crunch. 

"Franz Kafka" said Mildred. 

"I hope you will be very happy" said Crunch and shook 
Mildred's hand and they have remained good friends to 
this day. In fact, Crunch and Irmgard often double-date 
with Franz and Mildred and have barrels of fun. Franz 
knows how to ride backwards on his skateboard one-legged.

So you see, aWs well that ends well— including a shave 
with Pertonna Super Stainless Steel Blades and 
Personna's partner in luxury shaving— Burma-Shave. It 
comes in menthol or regular; it soaks rings around any 
other lather.

Ibsen Play Reviewed 

Classicism. At The College Theater 

By Jim O'Quinn 

The word "classic" has, for the 
student, a fearsome sound. Since 
the virtual beginnings of his cul- 
tural education "classicism" has 
been presented as an unquestion- 
able standard of Importance — and 

Whether sitting down (at last) 
to really read War and Peace or 
submitting himself (unavoidably) 
to listen to a recording of a Bach 
chorale, the student approaches 
the experience with a sense of 
moral obligation. The results is 
often that, with all that Impor- 
tance clogging the air, communi- 
cation totally disintegrates. 

The student pulls through, in- 
evitably, and emerges feeling 
that his conscience has been 
calmed. What he says to himself 
is, "Well, at last I've read it" (or 
seen it or heard it) but what he 
means is that he'll never have to 
read it (or see it or hear it) again. 

"Hedda Gabler" was written in 
1890 by Norwegian dramatist 
Henrik Ibsen: It is a character 
play, a play about social forms 
and social interaction, and , as 
can be attested by its repeated 
mention in college-level English 
textbooks, a full-fledged literary 

"Hedda Gabler" is "approved" 
material. So what sort of contri- 
bution is left to be made by us as 
an audience? There we sit, try- 
ing hard not to let ourselves think 
we are bored, if we are bored; 
and not getting too very excited,, 
either, if we are moved and im- 
pressed. ("Open enthusiasm is 
hard to come by" when the play 
is a classic, says New York Times 
drama critic Walter Kerr. "And, 
besides, the general playgoer has 
been so busy congratulating him- 
self on simply being there that he 
hasn't had much energy left over 
to pay attention to what was be- 
ing said.") 

The problem of "Hedda Gab- 
ler's" effectiveness is further 
complicated by the fact that the 
mountain of words heaped onto 
the playgoer is riddled with ar- 
chaic expressions and stolid lan- 
guage, by virtue of the author's 
era and his realistic depiction of 
it. Emotional reactions by the 
characters to the events of the 
play are also obviously dated, 
relevant to a social structure and 
class temperament perhaps en- 
countered to better advantage in 
printed study than as dramatic 
entertainment. There are plays 
which today should be read rather 
than performed. 

"Hedda Gabler" is not one of 
these, however, despite the se- 
veral unavoidable misfortunes of 
its modern-day presentation. The 
play has a timelessnes of theme, 
and conflicts like those of the 
central characters in "Hedda 
Gabler" have been and will al- 
ways be the subject of drama. The 
theme of excessive and self-de- 
feating individualism (which

echoes back through Shakespeare 
to old Greek drama) is couched 
by Ibsen in psychological and 
social documentary. 

The College Theater production 
of "Hedda Gabler," directed by 
Dr. Edna West, is an extremely 
well-mounted, smoothly executed 
show which plows through the 
melodramatic story line without 
sufficient development of char- 
acter relationships. Personality 
contrasts are intelligently and 
effectively suggested, and the 
level of individual performance 
is uniformly high. 

Guest actress Vera Graham, a 
member of the college speech 
faculty, is gloriously ambivalent 
and often scathingly funny as 
Ibsen's anti-heroine. She plays 
Hedda as the unscrupulous new 
woman, esthetic but unemotional, 
godless, exasperated, coquettishly 
beautiful, devoted only to one 

vocation — " To bore the life out 
of myself." 

Eilert Lovborg (Marc Petta- 
way), George Tesman (Gordon 
Parker), and Judge Brack (John 
Wood) are the men who com- 
plicate Hedda's problem. Petta- 
way brings professionalism and 
dramatic power to the role of 
Lovborg, the tortured, creative 
genius who is not only able to 
understand the past but to forsee 
the future. 

As Hedda's pedantic, devoted, 
almost simple-minded husband, 
Parker skillfully creates a con- 
sistent characterization of re- 
markable insight and effective- 
ness. It is his best role to date 
in college theater. 

John Wood is sufficiently men- 
acing as the opportunistic, Neitz- 
schean judge. 

Alice Anne Conner achieves a 

completeness of personality and 
stage-to-audience communication 
in her moving role as Tesman's 
gentle Aunt Juliana. Barbara 
Gresham successfully underplays 
the old-fashioned role of Thea 
Elvsted, Ibsen's image of femini- 
nine strength in the overpowering 
dilemma of an impossible situ- 
ation. Karen Dowty appears in 
the supporting role of Bertha, the 
Tesman's devoted maidservant. 

Of special note in this pro- 
duction are the wonderfully au- 
thentic period costumes created 
for the show under costume di- 
rector Brenda Chandler. The set, 
itself a marvel of antique pro- 
priety, was the collaborative 
effort of Richard Bushnell's 
scenery crew, stage manager Nick 
Pollacia, Dot Martin and Pat De- 
lano on properties, and technical 
director Frank Magers. Harvey 
Wilson and John Braden managed 
lighting and sound effects.

I'm a well-known composer, and I need a new car. 
The trouble is, I'm just too Bizet to pick one out. And 
what's more, many of the new cars I see are Offen-

He was given an excellent deal and Berlioz any 
money on it. My Bach is to the wall. Can you help me? 



My advice is that you let yourself Ravel in the enjoy- 
ment of driving the sporty, all-new Dart for '67. 
You'll find its Liszt price is a lot lower than you'd 
expect. And even though it's longer outside and 
bigger inside this year, Dart's still an easy car to

that snug compact price. Drop in at your nearest Dodge Dealer's and

(Continued from page 1) 
books will be one-half of the orig- 
inal retail price, if they are to be 
used again as textbooks. 

5. Only books sold by the book 
store will be re-purchased. 

In explanation of the pricing of 
paperback books, it was pointed 
out that these are pre-priced by 
the publisher. When the publish- 
er increased prices on these 
books, a tab was placed over the 
original retail price indicating the 
new price. The book store price 
must be based on the new retail 
price stamped by the publisher 
on the tab. 

In explaining the book re-pur- 
chase policy, Miss Mahfouz out- 
lined seven points: 

1. Books damaged beyond fu- 
ture use, in the opinion of the 
manager, will not be re-purch- 
ased. Examples of damage include 
marking out of printed words, 
water damage, excessive marking, 
pages torn or missing, covers 
bent or broken, and tampering 
with book store pricing or label- 

2. Students who resign or drop 
a course within the first two 
weeks of the fall or spring se- 
mesters, or the first week of the 
summer term, may have their 
books re-purchased at the price 
for which the book will be re- 
sold. This will apply only to 
books used in courses for which 
the student is currently enrolled 
as verified by his Dean's office. 
If a student is required to drop 
a course for the convenience of 
the College, his book will be re- 
purchased at the price he paid 
for it.

Johnny Mathis Concert Friday 

The phenominal Johnny Mathis, 
top recording star for Mercury 
Records, will arrive at Prather 
Coliseum next Friday at 8 p.m. 
with an evening of popular musi- 
cal entertainment. 

Through the efforts of the Stu-

entertainers scheduled this spring 
at the college. 

Mathis is best known for his 
national hits, "Wonderful, Won-

his record-breaking album sales. 
He has received 18 gold records 
for his albums, "Johnny's Greatest 
Hits," "More of Johnny's Greatest 
Hits," "Merry C h r i s t m a s," 
"Warm," and several others. 

Over the past few years, Johnny- 
has recorded some 30 albums, 
each of which has sold over half- 
a-million copies, and he is the 
only singer to ever have four al- 
bums listed simultaneously as 

best-sellers on the national music 

Accompanying Mathis in his 
show is "Our Young Generation," 
a group of young entertainers 
consisting of 4 boys and 4 girls 
who are touring with him. 

Tickets, at $3.50 per person, will 
be available at the door. Students 
who did not purchase the book 
of tickets for the spring enter- 
tainment will be charged $2 per 
person at the door.

Tech's Strong Finish 
Stops Quintet, 75-63 

Tech held on to first place in the 
Gulf States Conference with a 
75-63 victory over a Demon quin- 
tet that faltered in the stretch 
here Monday night. 

The Bulldogs from Ruston were 
in front most of the way, but the 
home team was pesky enough to 
keep Tech under pressure until 
the last three minutes. 

The round-ballers, suffering 
through one of its worst seasons 
in years, caved in as the clock ran 
out, and Tech scored 10 points 
while holding the Demons to just 
two in the final three minutes. 

The Demons led twice in the 
opening minutes of the game and 
again in the second half, but Tech, 
despite subpar performances by 
star players Leon Barmore and 
Charlie Bishop, went ahead with 
16:17 left in the game and stayed 
there the rest of the way. 

Tech ran up a nine-point lead 
with 6:30 remaining in the game, 
but the Demons chopped it down 
on field goals by Wayne Lee and 
David Clark until the Bulldogs 
enjoyed only 65-61 bulge going 
into the last three minutes. 

Winning its seventh conference 
game in eight outings, Tech stayed 
ahead of second place Southwes- 
tern in the race for the GSC flag. 
The Bulldog's victory gave them 
a 13-6 mark for the year. 

Northwestern slipped to 6-13 
for the season and 4-5 in confer- 
ence play. 

Clark, among the league's lead- 
ing scorers with a 22.3 mark for 
the year, hit for only eight points 
on three of 14 from the floor and 
2 of 2 free throws. Demon center 
James Wyatt, back in the lineup 
after missing two games for di- 
sciplinary reasons, got 11 points. 

Clayton To Coach 
Baseball Squad; 
Others Named 

At the regular meeting of the 
Northwestern Athletic Depart- 
ment, held Monday, Feb. 6, Jack 
Clayton, athletic director and for- 
mer head football coach, was 
named baseball coach. 

His appointment was effective 
immediately. He will hold this 
position for one year along with 
his present job. 

Also named were Gene Knecht, 
to instruct the tennis squad; Don 
Beasley, to handle the golf team; 
and John Thompson, to coach the 
track and field team.

Tech's big gun for the evening 
was Richard Peek, who canned 
24 points, hitting nine of 11 from 
the field. Jim Pruett hit 18 for 
the Canines, and Jon Stephenson 
added 13. 

Jerry McLaurin had 16 points

DAVID CLARK, a 6'4" senior for-

up the pace, he will join the elite

night's contest with La. Tech, 
Clark had a career total of 1431 
points. With six more games to 
go (at press time), the Demon 
ace needs only 69 more tallies.

A better idea 
never came out of a crystal ball 

At Ford Motor Company we're always looking 
for better ideas. But not with a crystal ball. 

We do it with background and brain. 

We do it by seeking answers for down-to- 
earth questions such as: Should a profitable central 
city dealership be relocated to a growing suburban 
location? What's the sales potential for a new 
personal car? 

And we do it by trying to solve problems that 
haven't been faced till now. Problems such as: Is an 
electric car the answer to city traffic? How will 
people travel in the year 2000? 

In short, our better ideas come from better 
people. And we take extra steps to get them. Ford 
Motor Company has a College Graduate Program 

which provides immediate opportunities for indi- 
vidual development. In our rotational assignment 
system graduates are assured broad training and 
constant visibility to management. Right now, new 
products, new marketing programs, new subsidiary 
operations here and abroad are creating new jobs. 
One could be yours. 

For more information, write our College 
Recruiting Department. Or better yet, schedule an 
appointment through your placement office to 
talk with our representa- 
tive. He'll be on campus 
soon— looking for better 
people with better ideas.

From Down Under— 

With Jay Keppel 

On behalf of the Sports Staff of the Current Sauce, I wish 
to extend to you our greetings and assurance that we will do 
our best to report the various sporting events which will be 
taking place during the semester. 

The spring sports calendar is filled, and promises much 
action and many thrills for sports enthusiasts. Heading the 
list is the NAIA Gymnastics Meet to be held here March 9-11. 
This extravaganza will be televised nationally by ABC-TV. 

Baseball, of course, is going to be with us shortly. Former 
Head Coach "Cracker" Brown has resigned, thereby leaving 
his position vacant. However, it has been strongly rumored 
that Athletic Director Jack Clayton will take over this position 
in an interim capacity for one year. Nevertheless, the squad 
will be starting formal workouts in the near future. 

Track and field is another major sport that will be much 
in evidence. Likewise, our golf, tennis and swimming teams 
will be in competition, providing their fans with much to 
talk about. 

Basketball is presently in the limelight, and the Demons 
are having a mediocre season. Going into their February 6 
encounter with La. Tech they had a record of 6 wins and 
twelve losses. However, their slate is not entirely indicative 
of the season. The squad has been somewhat erratic thus far, 
showing flashes of brilliance at times, while in other instances 
they seemed sluggish and unable to get started. Then too, 
there have been many close games that could have gone 
either way according to how the breaks went, including the 
"classic" loss to Centenary, when a highly unusual four-point 
play pulled an 84-83 victory out for the Gents. 

Football spring drills will begin under new Head Coach 
Glenn Gossett, who assumed his position in December after 
leaving an assistant's role at SMU. Present plans call for in- 
formal workouts beginning in February, with formal practice 
starting in April. 

Finally, we will be covering the various intramural sport- 
ing occurrences. This will include everything from canoe rac- 
ing to ping-pong. 

On that note, I will bring this particular column to a close 
in order to begin the next.

Space Tragedy Delay? 

Levitt Predicts Stroll On Lunar Surface 

By Jay Keppel 

"I can tell you now that by 
1970 or 1971, a man will be walk- 
ing on the moon." 

With this pointed promise Dr. 
L M. Levitt opened his address 
to the first spring assembly Wed- 
nesday in the Fine Arts Audi- 

Dr. Levitt, renowned author, 
inventor, and director of the 
Phelps Planetarium Institute in 
Philadelphia, Pa., gave a lecture 
replete with more than 50 full- 
color, finely-detailed slides to a 
healthy turnout of students and 

Dr. Levitt has been associated 
with space-oriented operations 
since 1937. His talk was extemely 
informative while not going be- 
yond the technical limitations of 
the average listener. 

Dr. Levitt explained the space 
flight using the slides to illus- 
trate the entire sequence of the 
planned moon shot from take-off 
to landing, either at sea or on 

The scientist accentuated the 
fantastic calculations and intra- 
casies involved with the lunar 
landing. He detailed rocket sizes 
and the extreme costs required in 
this attempt. 

After a successful first landing, 
Dr. Levitt anticipates that by 
1980, there will be a well-estab- 
lished colony on the moon's sur- 
face which will be supplied by 
a nuclear shuttle train traveling 
between the Earth and moon. 

To the skeptics, he admonished, 
"We as human beings tend to 
over-estimate the difficulty of a 
task in the future, while we 
under-estimate our present prob- 

Dr. Levitt proceeded to explain 
the events which will follow in 
space by 1977. He firmly eblieves 
that there is infinite life on other 
planets in the universe, and that 
somewhere in the forseeable fu- 
ture we may contact with one 
form or another of that life. 

During a short question and 
answer period after the address, 
Dr. Levitt answered the following 

Scientist Answers Questions 
Q: Do you feel that the recent 
tragedy at Cape Kennedy wilt 
delay the U.S. space program 
very much? 

A: At this time, I do not think 
that it will. If we leave the pro- 
gram as is, that is to keep the 
pure oxygen atmosphere, we will 
be ready for another attempt 

within six months. However, iif 
they decide to switch to a dual 
atmosphere (nitrogen and oxy- 
gen), it could take up to two

made and the subsequent re- 
testing that would then be re- 
quired before a launch could be 

Spring Graduate Classes Listed 

Thirty-seven special evening 
and Saturday graduate classes 
will be offered this spring in 
Shreveport, Alexandria, and on 
campus, it was announced by 
Dean Leo T. Allbritten of the 
Graduate School. 

Registration for 27 on-campus 
special graduate classes will be 
conducted Saturday, Feb. 4, at 
8:30 a.m. Evening classes will be 
from 6 to 9 o'clock and morning 
classes from 9 to 12 noon. 

On-campus offerings, according 
to days scheduled are: 

Gymnasts Tangle 
Here Tomorrow 

Undefeated after four meets, 
the nationally famous Demon 
gymnasts will tangle with the 
Northeast acrobats in a match at 
Prather Coliseum tomorrow night 
at 7:30. 

The Demons have a record 
four wins, and no losses. The 
defending NAIA national champ- 
ions have defeated LSU, South- 
western, and LSU-NO thus far in 
dual meet competition. They also 
captured the national gymnastics 
clinic held earlier in the year at 
Sarasota, Fla. 

The Indians of NLSC likewise 
possess an impressive worksheet. 
Included in their total of three 
wins and one loss are victories at 
the Midwest Gymnastics Meet, 
the Arizona Clinic, and the South- 
ern Regional United States Gym- 
nastics Conference Meet. Their 
only "loss" was a second place 
finish in another clinic.

ficient to gain admittance to the

Q: Do you personally feel that 
the Russians are ahead of us in 
the so-called "space race?" 

A: No, the Russians do not 
have the rocket power that we 
now possess. At best, they are 
somewhat behind us, and especi- 
ally in the technical aspects. How- 
ever, they may attempt a circum- 
lunar orbit around the moon be- 
fore the year is over. 

Q: Do you feel that our first 
manned lunar landing will be a 
complete success? 

A: I can only say yes to this. 
If we did not feel that our first 
shot will be completely success- 
ful, then it would not be made.

Guardia in Ashes 

Academic Work, Books Lost In Blaze; 
Teachers, Students Watch Helplessly 

By The Current Sauce Staff 

"It's absurd," David Crawford 
observed quietly. 

The tall, young instructor of 
Philosophy had just lost $500 in 
books and two years' work on 
dissertation notes in the Guardia 
holocaust. He stood Wednesday 
morning with other bewildered- 
looking members of the Guardia 
faculty near the smoldering re- 
mains of the 1912 structure. 

Crawford's despondency was 
typical. Jane Nahm, associate pro- 
fessor of government and social 
studies, acknowledged that she 
lost over $12,000 in books and 
Property. Many of her books, like 
the priceless archeological relics 
in the second-floor museum were 

History professor Dr. Donald 
M. Rawson lost invaluable notes 
that went back to his college 

days. Kenneth Guerin, one of 
six graduate students with of- 
fices in the building, lost research 
data that represented hours upon 
hours of labor in the library. "I'll 
just have to start over from 
scratch," Guerin mused, as he 
tried to smile. 

There were other losses of a 
still more personal nature. A 
pair of bronzed baby shoes were 
among the items lost by Kim 
Curry, professor of anthropology. 
They had belonged to his infant 
daughter who died little more 
than a year ago. 

The teachers knew that ma- 
terials for entire Social Sciences 
Department lay in ruin. The de- 
partment film library and map 
collection, as well as countless 
sheafs of instructional materials 
accumulated over the years, were 

"I don't think I have the sta- 
mina to begin it all over again." 
Gilford Jackson, government and 
Communism teacher, declared. 
"Every class note I've taken for 
20 years was in that building." 

Dr. Yvonne Phillips, head of 
the department, is now tallying 
a complete list of the value of 
the loss, although, as she puts it, 
"It is almost impossible to put a 
value on many of the kinds of 
things that were destroyed." The 
Williamson Museum and the 
plates and photographic collec- 
tion for "Louisiana Studies" are 
irreplacible, Dr. Phillips added. 
Fortunately, the winter issue of 
the quarterly was at the printers 
this week, and materials for the 
spring issue were at Dr. Phillip's 

From student witnesses on the 
scene Wednesday came comments 

like that of Diane Oliver, a resi- 
dent of Varnado: "I thought it 
was hailing . . .the crackling noise 
from the fire was so loud!" Mari- 
lyn White, another bystander, 
added, "I thought it was going to 
get Varnado." 

"I'm just glad it happened while 
no one was in it," student Ray 
Mobley commented sadly. 

Many students offered class 
notes from past years to the in- 
structors who will be faced with 
compiling completely new teach- 
ing outlines for their courses. 

Since Louisiana Studies sub- 
scription lists were destroyed. 
Social Science Department Head 
Dr. Yvonne Phillips has asked 
that all subscribers write the de- 
partment and give necessary 
information so that subsequent 
issues of the magazine can be 
mailed to them. 

Tradition Crusted 
Hall Irreplaceable 

Guardia is gone. 

The fifty-five year old land- 
mark, which housed classrooms, 
art studios, language laboratories, 
faculty offices, and one of the 
finest archeology collections in 
the South, burned to the ground 
early Wednesday morning. 

Guardia was the second oldest 
building on campus, and, with the 
renovation of Caldwell Hall, 
woud have been one of the last of 
the old Tudor structures in the 
area. She stood since 1912 as a 

Dean Thomas has announced 
that room assignments for class- 
es formerly meeting in Guardia 
may be obtained from the dean's 
offices and will be posted in the 
Student Union and the dormi- 

sturdy symbol of permanence and 
academic stability until fire raced 
through her interior in the night 
and the gutted brick frame fell 
to wreckers this week. 

College president Arnold Kil- 
patrick announced Thursday that 
it would take $1.5 million to re- 
place Guardia, and that he would 
appeal to state and federal agen- 
cies for the grant. 

The fire was discovered shortly 
before 4 a.m. Wednesday by Cam- 
pus Security officer John Watts. 
Natchitoches Fire Chief Prince 
Gantt directed the work of two 
pumpers and all available fire- 
men, but the crew was unable to 
salvage any part of the building 
or its contents. 

The cause of the fire is un- 
known. Watts reported that the 
building had been burning for 
some time before the fire was 
discovered. Flames were not visi- 
ble through the windows until it 
was too late. 

Destroyed in the disaster were 
equipment and furnishings of a 
ceramics studio laboratory, other 
art studios, an agriculture depart- 
ment laboratory, a language lab- 
ortory, a cartography laboratory, 
the social science department film 
library and map collections, and 
two classrooms equipped for tele- 
vision instruction. 

A major loss was the collection 
in the Williamson Museum, a 
project nationally recognized as 
a major contribution to the sci- 
ences, chiefly representative of 
Louisiana pre-history. 

Guardia Hall housed offices for 
30 faculty members and six gradu- 
ate assistants. Personal losses by 
those teachers were particularly 
heavy, including not only books 
but collections of notes and in- 
structional materials accumulated 
over a period of many years. 

Louisiana Studies, the five-year- 
old quarterly publication of the 
Louisiana Studies Institute, was 
compiled and edited in Guardia, 
and the institute's photographic 
collection, five years of back 
files, and the printing plates for 
the magazine destroyed. 

By Thursday afternoon, Guar- 
dia's charred frame had been com- 
pletely leveled by wreckers, and 
the ashen rubble still smouldered 
Thursday night as the campus 
went to sleep.

Trudgemore And The Testers 

"TT 1 ^ Hcftetfotieu that you 


&F(Zltf6 ' IT ON THEM . " 

By Shirley Rutledge 

Trudgemore enters the class- 
room with a confident gleam in 
his eye. It is time to ace another 
of Professor Snarf's Criminology 
102 tests. A piece of aluminum 
foil has been cleverly disguised 
as a platinum pinky ring. Trudge 
has been careful to brush up on 
his Advanced Erasure Smudging 
204 and Line Connecting 103 be- 
fore the ordeal. 

It is a well-known fact that one 
has to have an I.Q. approaching 
genius, the luck of the Irish, and 
a relative in the family to pass 
one of Snarf's tests. Now the 
stage is set. 

And so begins the demise of 
another uninformed student. 

Professor Snarf uses the ma- 
chine method to grade his tests, 
as do many of the teachers on 
the NSC campus. It is rare, if 
not impossible, to graduate from 
NSC without coming into contact 
with this particular testing medi- 

Most students, like Trudge- 
more, suffer under the illusion 

LSU Coeds Fight 
Battle Of Sexes 

Coeds eked out a 251-244 vic- 
tory over males students at Louisi- 
ana State University last month 
as they managed to vote down 
the proposition that LSU coeds 
came to college seeking husbands 
rather than an education, reports 
the Daily Reveille. 

The vote was taken at the third 
speech forum of the semester, 
which turned out to be a battle of 
the sexes. Men seated on one 
side and women on the other 
side of the union ballroom volley- 
ed vehement comments back and 
forth for some 45 minutes. . 

Denise Engeran, principal 
speaker for the winning coeds, 
said women 10 years ago might 
have been just looking for hus- 
bands but that, in 1966, women's 
"career drive exceeds their mat- 
ing drive." 

She noted that women make up 
one-third of the 79 million labor- 
ers in the United States and earn 
three-fourths as much as men do. 
Four of five coeds she interview- 
ed, Miss Engeran said, knew what 
career they were going into. 

"Saying most girls come to col- 
lege to get a husband is like say- 
ing a man comes to college to stay 
out of Vietnam," she said. 

She pointed out that "Who's 
Who in American Colleges and 
Universities contained the 
names of more women than men, 
and that of 576 freshmen on the 
honor roll last semester, only 250 
were males. 

Vincent Hazleton, speaking for 
the affirmative, argued that fe- 
males are trained to get husbands 
from the minute they leave their 
diapers and get their "Betsy 
Wetsy" dolls. 

"Females are hunters," he said, 
claming that at the age of 18 they 
are ready to stalk their future 
mates and that the universities 
are their hunting grounds. Wo- 
men know the best catches are 
made on a university campus, he 

The main reason women drop 
out of college, Hazleton continued, 
is to marry and have a family, 
"hopefully in that order." 

While the coeds contended they 
are in school to get an education, 
one male countered by asking, 
"Can you see yourself 20 years 
from now, working eight hours a 
day, instead of caring for a hus- 
band and family." 

A Chat About Evaluation 
Of Teachers By Students — 
Would It Bomb At NSC ? 

By Alice Anne Conner 

The other evening at the SGA meeting, our 
esteemed school leaders reported on their recent 
trip to Ruston to the state student government con- 

One of the most interesting topics brought up 
concerned "teacher evaluation." This little under- 
taking, it seems, is going on at several colleges and 
is apparently meeting with great success. 

The term means just what it says, in that stu- 
dents evaluate their teachers on a "point system" 
as to their ability to teach, grading scale, attitude 
testing measures. 

All these findings, at least at one college, are 
published in booklet form for all the world to see. 
Students need merely pick up their Handy Teacher 
Guide and choose which one best suits his personal- 
ity — or lack of it, as the case may be. 

Several questions are brought to mind after 
pondering this remarkable innovation. What would 
happen to the students who gave a teacher a bad 
evaluation? Would a teacher's "points" go up or 
down according to how "hard" he is? 

A suggestion of merit has been discussed and 
approved by certain individuals in this school 
which would entail rating said teacher much like 
one rates old movies. In this case, however, the 
scale would appear thusly: 1-easy; 2-pretty easy; 
3-not so easy; 4-a real terror. 

A typical page from the NSC booklet (which 
could be distributed in students' "packets") might 
bear some resemblance to the following: 

PHILLIPS, soc. sc.— (4+)— It all depends on 
how gung-ho one is. If one's only course is soc. st. 
101, and one has nothing else to do, he should at 
least pull a D+ in the course. 

"DOC" MARX, health, p.e.— (Va -4)— Depends 
I upon how hard student can laugh at his jokes. 

FRANK MAGERS, speech, TV— (1-4)— Ano- 
ther joker. In this case, student should be careful 
not to make funnier jokes than the instructor. 

TAYLOR, speech therapy— (4+)— don't let 
those smiling blue eyes and that sweet voice fool 
you. Underneath the winning smile lies a heart as 
hard as last week's dessert. 

McCORKLE, history— (3 -r)— If the student has 
a photographic memory and can read minds (his), 
this course will be a snap. 

DORING, English— (4++)— There's no way 
out of this one. Student should prepare himself for 
a semester of midnight oil, swollen eyes and an in- 
timate relationship with Shakespere. 

JACKSON, gov't, Communism— (2-3)— A stu- 
dent needn't believe everything this instructor 
tells him, but he must be certain to agree with 
I everything he says. 

HOLLIER, physics— (3-4)— Depends on stu- 
dent's ability to understand what he says after he 
mangles it through the microphone. 

GATES, psychology— (2-3)A sure-fire way to 
do well in this class is to become familiar with the 
life history of THE WILD BOY OF AVALON. 

KRUSE, biology— (4 + + +)— Student need not 
attempt to prepare for this one. He should, how- 
ever, become proficient in pre-test prayer. 

that these tests can be fixed or 
rigged so that a perfect score 
results. A word to the wise. . . 
"It just ain't so!" 

The NSC Testing Bureau has 
recently acquired a new compu- 
ter, the IBM 1230. As Dr. Tandy 
McElwee, head of the bureau, ex- 
plains, the machine operates by 
means of a photo-electric cell 
which utilizes the principle of 
light impressions rather than the 
outdated one of electrical impul- 

This simply means that con- 
necting the dotted lines, smud- 
ging erasures, polka-dotting the 
answer slots, or, as some have 
tried, rubbing aluminum foil 
over the answer sheet to "elec- 
trify" it are to no avail. The ma- 
chine merely selects the darkest 

answer and ignores all others. 
If two answers are of equal inten- 
sity, the machine overlooks them 
completely, and the score for 
that question is "0." 

Dr. McElwee points out to stu- 
dent test-takers the importance 
of making clean erasures on the 
answer sheets. A number two 
lead pencil should be used at all 

"Never use ink or ball point 
pens to take these tests," Dr. Mc- 
Elwee emphasized, as the ma- 
chine will not "read" papers 
marked in this way. 

So, after Trudgemore comes 
out of shock, the truth may dawn 
on him — he has met his match! 
It looks like the time has come 
to break down and commit the 
unthinkable— STUDY. 

Placement Provides 
Counsel For The Wise 

By Steve Gunn 

Wisdovi is too high for a fool: 
he openeth not his mouth in the 
gate (Proverbs 24:7). 

According to Harrel Haile, di- 
rector of the Alumni and Place- 
ment Office, and Assistant Direc- 
tor E.H. Gilson, more students 
should open their mouths in the 
gate of the job-finding bureau. 

It really doesn't take a wise 
man to find it, nor is is too 
high — it's just on the second floor 
of the Student Union Building. 

Haile and Gilson, who have ta- 
ken over the helm of the "senior 
hunts for job — job hunts for sen- 
ior business" since the retire- 
ment of Joe Webb, would simply 
like for every senior to bring a 
small pocketbook photograph and 
come by and sit down and fill 
out a form that anyone can com- 
plete in less than three minutes. 

Haile illustrated, "The facilities 
are here; the students only have 
to take advantage of them." 

On that point Gilson added, 

Education Degree 
Approved for NSC 

The Louisiana State Board of 
Education has approved the offer- 
ing by Northwestern State College 
of the education specialist degree, 
according to NSC Acting Presi- 
dent Arnold R. Kilpatrick. 

This marks the first time that 
the college will offer a degree 
beyond the master's. 

The new Northwestern program 
is expected to fill a need for a 
unified program for teachers pur- 
suing 30 graduate hours beyond 
the master's degree in order to 
qualify for a higher salary. In- 
stead of an indefinite accumula- 
tion of graduate hours, the new 
program will also provide moti- 
vation for advanced study on the 
part of many teachers. 

Admission requirements will in- 
clude a master's degree from a 
regionally accredited institution, 
three years of successful teaching 
experience, letters of recommend- 
ation from appropriate school and 
college officials and the Graduate 
Record Examination Aptitude 

Summer Workshop 
On Conservation 
To Offer Credit 

A Conservation and Resource- 
Use Education workshop will be 
held here this summer in coope- 
ration with the State Department 
of Education, the Louisiana For- 
estry Commission, the Soil Con- 
servation Service, minerals in- 
dustries, an dthe Wildlife and 
Fisheries Commission. 

Robert H. Nichols, assistant 
professor of geography will serve 
as Director of the workshop. 
Three hours of graduate credit in 
geography (521) will be available 
to participants. 

"We have known several cases 
where seniors have accepted jobs 
paying $1000 less than what we 
could have gotten for them. It 
pays to check with us." 

Haile acknowledged that a 
greater variety of jobs can now 
be attained through the Alumni 
and Placement Office: "In the 
past, this office's primary interest 
has been to find jobs for teachers, 
but now, more contacts are being 
made with private enterprise, 
and in each of these concerns 
such as Humble Oil, Ford and 
the Swift Meat Packing Co., the 
jobs being offered are increasing- 
ly more varied." 

According to Haile and Gilson, 
it really doesn't matter what 
your major is to get a good job. 
As evidence of this, one corpor- 
ation's brochure lists accounting, 
business administrations, chem- 
istry, civil engineering. . . law, lib- 
eral arts, mathematics, ect, as 
fields of interest. 

"And as seniors in education," 
Gilson asserted, "they should 
work through our office. We can 
help them find what they want." 

"In addition to seniors, we work 
with alumni, graduate students 
and lower classmen," Gilson add- 
ed. "We also have numerous sum- 
mer job offers ranging from the 
Rocky Mountains to Europe. Most 
of them pay around $200 and 
room and board." 

Any students interested in an 
interview should watch the Cur- 
rent Sauce for dates, then go to 
the Alumni and Placement Off- 
ice and make an appointment. 
Interviews run about 15 minutes 
in length. 

"So far we've had more job 
bids than we have had students 
to fill them," Gilson said, "Only 
75 per cent of the seniors enrolled 
have turned in forms. Everybody 

But for some it's just too high.

What the David Kadanes did puzzled and puz- 
zles a lot of people. Maybe because the Ka- 
danes weren't anywhere near twenty years old 
anymore. Maybe because they gave up two 
years' worth of a lot of salary, two years' worth 
of a big job as General Counsel for the Long 
Island Lighting Company, two years' worth of a 
life they had spent their whole lives building 
just to ioin the Peace Corps.

that the Peace Corps isn't just a place for just- 
out-of-college kids with strong arms and heads 
and good size hearts. The Peace Corps is a 
place for people who want to do something 
| and can do something. It's a place for people 
1 who want to see things and do things firsthand 
and close up. People who want to give other 
people a chance to get to know and under- 
stand their country and themselves as they 
really are. People who care about the world 
end other people maybe even as much as they 
care about themselves. 

And, maybe more than onything, the 
Peace Corps is a place for people who, for 
some reason, are willing to give up whatever 
they have to give up to do something they feel 
they have to do. And the David Kadanes are 
two of those people.

Caddo Seiged During Blackout 

A 40-minute power failure 
spawned near-violence on campus 
Sunday night as hundreds of half- 
clad men students poured from 
the darkened dorms to assemble 
near Bossier Hall for a tradition- 
ally forbidden assualt on the wo- 
men's residence halls. 

Undaunted by the near-freezing 
weather, shouting, disorderly 
droves of the raiders repeatedly 
surged across the muddy slope 
from Bossier dorm to Caddo 
while flashlights searched the 
scene and housemothers watched 

The crowd began to gather mo- 
ments after the power failed at 
11:30. Spectators jamming 
Bossier's four -level out-door stair 
platforms cheered and chanted 
as the sporadic expeditions 

Caddo residents were called in- 
to wing assemblies in the dormi- 
tory halls, but many watched the 
good-natured mob from windows 
and tossed out terse comments 
or articles of clothing. Camera 
flashes from a first-floor window 
sent scores of the male intruders 
racing back to safer ground. 

Several boys entered rooms in 
Caddo through unlocked windows 
on the Bossier side and in front 
of the Dorm. One window was 
shattered and clothing was taken 
from several rooms. No extensive 
damage was reported. 

Several groups of the boys 
were making for Louisiana Hall 
and Varnado when electricity was 
restored to most of the campus 
at 12:10 a.m. Monday. 

No specific diciplinary meas- 
ures against the students have 
been reported to date.

(By the author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys!",

Crushed between the twin millstones of January 
weather and final exams, you are saved from total des- 
pair, poor devils, only by the knowledge that winter vaca- 
tion will soon be here. 

Where will you go this year? Will it be Florida again, 
or are you tired of jails? Then how about Puerto Rico? 

A most excellent notion, say I. A balmy and bounteous 
island with long white beaches and blue, blue skies and 
green, healing seas. And, most pleasant of all, the warm 
and gracious people of Puerto Rico ! You don't even have 
to know Spanish to communicate with this friendly folk. 
Just learn three simple phrases and you'll get along 
splendidly : "Buenos dias" which means "Good morning," 
"Gracias" which means "Thank you," and "Que sera 
sera" which means "Your llama is on my foot." 

In order to help you enjoy the fabled land of Puerto 
Rico it would be well for me to supply a bit of historical 
background. (It would also be well for me to say a few 
words about Personna Super Stainless Steel Blades be- 
cause the makers of Personna Super Stainless Steel 
Blades pay me to write this column and they are inclined 
to sulk if I omit to mention their product. Of course, they 
don't stay gloomy long, for they are kindly, cheery men 
fond of Morris dancing, spelling bees, and temperance 
punch — fine, upright types, as true and gleaming and 
durable as the blades they make. And if you've tried 
Personna's, you know how true and gleaming and durable 
that is ! And if you haven't tried Personna's, poor devil, 
you've cheated both your purse and face, for Personna's 
last and last, shave after luxury shave, close, clean, nick- 
less, hackless, tugless, gougeless, scratchless, matchless. 
Personna Super Stainless Steel Blades come in Double 
Edge or Injector style and are made only by the makers 
of Personna Super Stainless Steel Blades.) 

But I digress. Back to the history of Puerto Rico. The 
island was discovered by that popular discoverer Chris- 
topher Columbus. Incidentally, considering Columbus' 
popularity, it's odd we know so little about him. What do 
we really know? Only this: 

He was born in Genoa on August 25, 1451, the son of 
Ralph T. Columbus, a knee-cymbal vendor, and Eleanor 
(Swifty) Columbus, a low hurdler. He was an only child 
except for his five brothers and eight sisters. From early 
childhood he was an avid reader and spent all his waking 
hours immersed in a book. Unfortunately, there was only 
one book in Genoa at the time — Care of the Horse by 
Aristotle — and after 18 years of reading Care of the 
Horse, Columbus grew restless. When rumor reached 
him there was another book in Madrid, off he ran as fast 
as his little fat legs would carry him. 

Disappointment, alas, awaited him there. The only book 
in Madrid was Cuidar un Cdballo, which proved to be noth- 
ing more than a Spanish translation of Care of the Horse. 

Then one day Columbus heard from a traveller that 
there were millions of books in India, and he was in- 
stantly ablaze to set sail. Off he ran on his little fat legs 
to the court of Ferdinand and Isabella (Columbus, though 
more than six feet tall, was plagued with little fat legs 
all his life) and, as we all know, he persuaded the Span- 
ish rulers to outfit him with three stout ships, the Flopsy, 
the Mopsy, and the Cottontail, and the rest is history! 

Well sir, now you know all about the origins of Puerto 
Rico. So get packed and get going ! You'll love it ! Stroll the 
beaches, swim the coves, breathe the fragrance of hibiscus 
and bougainvillea. And remember always that the friendly 
Puerto Ricans are delighted to show you their customs 
teach you their language. Why, I'll wager you'll soon know 
far more Spanish than the three basic phrases. You'll know 
"Hastalavista" which means "See you later." "Por favor" 
which means "Please," and "El tren se paro en las esta- 
cion which means "Your llama has eaten my passport."

Cajuns Hand Cagers 16th Loss; 
Hildebrand's Crew Loses 75-65 

The "Ragin Cajuns" of South- 
western put down the Demons 
by a count of 75-65 in a thrilling 
basketball game at Prather Coli- 
seum Monday night. The contest 
followed a pattern similar to the 
one against Tech last week. 

The Demons were hanging on 
and carrying the fight to the 
favored Cajuns throughout the 
first half. USL drew off to a 
slight lead at one point, but NSC 
cut it to only a two point deficit, 
36-34 as the half ended. 

The second half found South- 

western in the lead most of the 
way, but the Demons stayed with- 
in range. Finally, with 10:47 re- 
maining, Bill Ragland hit a 25 
foot jump shot tying the score 
at 53-53. However, the Demons 
started to falter, and USL pulled 
out to a 63-55 lead with only 5:30 
to go. 

The Cajuns went into a stall 
while NSC ran out of steam and 
faded away with the clock. 

High scorer for the Demons 
was Ragland with 18 points, while 
David Clark got 13 in the losing 
effort. Point honors for the night, 

Bowling League To Commence Shortly 

By Jim Freeman 

There will be a meeting for 
those people who are interested 
in joining men's, women's and 
mixed bowling leagues, Monday, 
at 6:30, in room 320 of the Stu- 
dent Union. 

Any full time or graduate stu- 
dent enrolled at NSC is eligible. 

Election of officers for the 
bowling committee will be held at 
this time. 

Jim Atkins, who is head of the 
Recreation Department at the Stu- 
dent Union, stresses that every- 
one should use the facilities that 
the College offers. Atkins is es- 
pecially concerned with the lack 
of women who patronize the pool 
tables and the bowling lanes. 

Bill Cantrell, who is in charge 
of the bowling lanes, says that 
he is also surprised with the small 
number of women who have 
signed to bowl in leagues. 

(This reporter checked the list 
that hangs on the bulletin board 
in the pool room. He found that 
of the eighty-eight names, only 
one female student had signed 

"We plan to have several teams 
in each league. The teams could 
be made up of any group of 
people. We also welcome all fra- 
ternities and sororities. In addi- 
tion, we would like to extend a 
special invitation to the staff and 
faculity to start a league," said 

"Even if someone has never 
bowled before, I can have him 
bowling a 150 average in two 
hours, provided he has a certain 
amount of physical co-ordination. 

"Those people who are not tak- 
ing bowling classes, and who have 
never bowled, a period of time 
will be set aside each week for 
bowling instruction. Rules, regula- 
tions, and courtesies will be 
taught as well as bowling tech- 

Cantrell also explained that 
everyone will work on a handi- 
cap basis. 

"If a bowler has an average of 
120." said Cantrell "then to find 
his handicap, subtract 120 from

to bowl professionally. Next, mul- 
tiply by 70 per cent, 80 per cent 
for women bowlers, and the handi- 
cap is 56." 

Both Atkins and Cantrell em- 
phasized that if the bowling lea- 
gues are to be a sucess, the wo- 
men as well as the men will have 
to turn out. 

however, went to Southwestern's 
Jerry Flake who tallied 21, with 
teammate Marvin Winkler in hot 
pursuit with 20 markers. 

A bright spot was the fact that 
the Demons out-rebounded the 
taller visitors 38-29. 

The loss was another tough 
one for Tynes Hilderbrand's 
charges as their record slipped 
to 6-15. It was nevertheless an 
action-packed game featuring 
the run-and-shoot USL style as 
opposed to the slower, more de- 
liberate Demon offense. 

USL, by virtue of the victory, 
remained in second place in the 
GSC standing behind Louisiana 
Tech which came from behind 
to whip Southeastern 96-89. 

The Demons' next opponents 
will be McNeese, Monday, and 
Centenary, Thursday.

WYATT, No. 40, reach for the

Baseball Team Begins Practice; 
Clayton Refuses To Prophesy 

Tigers, Wave, Rebels To Participate 
In Graduate "N" Club Track Meet 

Baseball fans are still astonish 
ed that Alvin "Cracker" Brown 
will not be the baseball coach 
this spring. 

After 26 years as head mentor, 
Coach Brown has resigned from 
the coaching ranks unexpectedly. 

The team will be coached this 
spring by ex-football coach Jack 
Clayton and graduate assistant 
Herbie Smith. 

They will begin the new season 
by inheriting a team that finished 
fourth in the GSC standings while 
compiling a 16-17 overall record 
in 1966. 

When asked to make a personal 
prediction on the outcome of the 
season, both Clayton and Smith 
agreed that with the opening 
game still approximately a 
month away, and with only a few 
days of practice behind them, it 
was still too early to evaluate the 

They did indicate, however, that 
the year should prove interesting 
since 12 lettermen are returning 
from the previous year, and that 
if several of the younger mem- 
bers come through, the team 
should hold its own in GSC com- 
petition this year, and possibly 
improve on last year's record. 

Heading the list of returnees 
are catcher Don Calvert and out- 
fielder Don Sclavounos, both of 
whom were selected to the all- 
conference team last year. Other 
lettermen are 2nd baseman Don 
Robinson, 3rd baseman Danny

Northeast Indians at Prather Col-

The Gymnastics team finished 
its dual meet season on an im-

highest point total scored this 
year in either NAIA or National 
Collegiate Athletic Association 
santioned meets. 

Northwestern stretched its un- 
defeated skein through its second 
straight year. This year they had 
won four dual meets and had suc- 
cessfully defended their North- 
South Gymnastics Clinic title held 
early in the season at Sarasota, 

In that event they placed six 
members of the team on the All- 
South squad, and Coach Fred 
Martinez was selected to head that 
same group.

From. Down Under— 

With Jay Keppel 

Certain aspects of Monday night's basketball contest 
with Southwestern was sickening to the true sports fan. The 
game was marked at times with what appeared to be poor 
officiating, and, for several reasons, by poor sportsmanship 
on behalf of the spectators. 

The partisan crowd repeatedly tossed derbis onto the 
court and at visitors. In one instance a young lady, a USL 
cheerleader, was hit in the face with a balled-up paper cup 
packed with ice. 

There were also a number of Northwestern students 
cheering for a couple of Southwestern players. Every move 
these players made brought cheers from our school's stands. 
But perhaps this seemingly disgraceful display of ambivalent 
loyality wasn't so bad, when you consider the fact that the 
official Northwestern cheer-LEADERS were nowhere in 
sight — it makes one wonder if real school spirit has gone out 
of style. "Keep the faith baby." 

With the basketball squad, in the throes of a long, ex- 
cruciating, dismal season, David Clark and James Wyatt have 

been having their difficulties 
which probably are factors in 
the Demons' lackluster show- 

In games against La. 
Tech, Nicholl's State and 
Southwestern, Clark has hit 
for only 8, 8 and 13 points. 
According to our records, he 
needs only 45 more points in 
the remaining four games to 
crack the coveted 1500 point 
career total which only one 
other person has been able to 
reach at Northwestern. 

Following this week's ac- 
tion, the Demons have only 
three contests left to play. 
Monday night they will face 
McNeese in Lake Charles, and 
Thursday they are scheduled 
to meet Centenary in Shreve- 
port. The season finale will 
be against Louisiana College 
in Prather Coliseum on Feb- 
ruary 28.

'So P/W/y We Hmt . . 


F/og of the free heart's hope and home, 

By Angel hands to valor given; 
Thy stars have lit the welkin dome, 

And all thy hues were born in heaven. 

— Joseph Rodman Drake 

By Alice Anne Conner 

On the evening of February 14, the ROTC Ca- 
dets went through the usual ritual of lowering the 
state and American flags which fly daily over the 
quadrangle on the hill. 

As has been performed for generations, the 
uniformed men carefully folded the flags and took 
them to a place of safe-keeping. Until its recent 
renovation, Caldwell Hall had been the appointed 
resting place of the banners. As of late, the flags 
had been taken to Guardia Hall and placed in a 
wooden box on the second floor. 

Little did the cadets realize that they were see- 
ing the Grand Old Flag for the last time. Early 
Wednesday morning, fate stepped in and swiped 
a flaming blow at the monumental old building, 
destroying everything it housed — including our 

Now the Army on campus is faced with the task 
of seeking out the possible remains of the American 
flag. Captain Richard Rahm of the ROTC program 
reported that there is an Army regulation stipu- 
lating that "in the event an American Flag is lost, 
damaged or destroyed, the nearest military in- 
stallation must search for any remains. If any are 
found, they must be burned and the ashes buried. 
Captain Rahm also noted that a military report must 
then be filed concerning the flag, and what has 
happened to it. 

As soon as it was learned that the flags had been 
destroyed, the ROTC officials went immediately 
to work trying to locate a state and American flag 
of the same size, another Army stipulation. 

Dr. Leonard Fowler of Northwestern Elemen- 
tary School was able to furnish the school a state 
a state flag, while the Natchitoches Post Office 
supplied the American flag. 

All this hurrying and scurrying just to replace 
a flag might appear unnecessary to the average 
person, but this same average person would be the 
first to shout his protests if he glanced up the 
towering flagpole in the quadrangle and saw no 
stars and stripes. 

Thank goodness the men in ROTC are not "just 
average". It's good to know there are still people 
who care whether or not a flag flies over North- 
western every single day — even in the face of ca- 

The Rule of Reason 

Discussion arose at the Student Govern- 
ment Association meeting Monday on pre- 
vious comments and criticisms made by the 
Current Sauce on SGA activities. 

The gist of the arguement, led primarily 
by Charles Knicely, Freshmen Men's Repre- 
sentative, was the dislike of personal attacks 
on SGA members by the student publication, 
and the general bias with which SGA activities 
were reported. Of special interest was criti- 
cism of student vice president David Faraldo. 

It was pointed out at the meeting that the 
Current Sauce is supported by funds which 
must be allocated by the Student Government 
Association. Approval of the appointment of 
Current Sauce Editor Jim O'Quinn depends 
directly on SGA action. 

We of the Current Sauce staff feel that 
in an academic institution idealism of purpose 
and action should be implicitly high. Political 
pressure has not and will not be a consider- 
ation in the news or editorial duties of the 
Current Sauce. Political pressure cannot re- 
quire the publication of only complementary 
material about any organization or person. 
The student government knows this. 

The desirable course in a college situation 
is for the student publication to offer fair, 

truthful news reporting, constitutionally re- 
quired material, and free, responsible editor- 
ial comment without fear of economic or ad- 
ministrative censure. This is the course the 
Current Sauce intends to follow. 

Expressing creative ideas and criticizing 
when necessary are functions of the college 
newspaper. Senior Class President Jerry 
Kemp, in a pointed defense of editorial license, 
declared Monday night that Current Sauce 
comment merely serves to "keep the SGA on 
its toes," and that "although the bias is there, 
there is also usually more truth than the 
SGA cares to admit." 

As for personal criticism, the fact that 
David Faraldo has been repeated mentioned 
in articles of a satiric vein serves only to in- 
dicate that Faraldo, as one of the best-known 
and most active members of the SGA council, 
is representative in the student mind of cam- 
pus politics and policies. 

The Current Sauce, while retaining every 
privilege of free comment and criticism, in- 
terpretive news reporting, and satirical pre- 
rogative, will exercise as complete a coopera- 
tion with the student government as is possi- 
ble in their respective positions as authority 
and check on authority. 

Paper Questions 
Textbook Prices 

Why are textbooks so expen- 
sive, asks Western Michigan Uni- 
versity's Western Herald? Is it 
the fault of the university-owned 
bookstore whose prices are as 
high as those of profit-making 
bookstores? Is the publishing 
industry to blame? 

Both contribute to the situation, 
the Western Herald concluded, 
but the greater culprit, without a 
doubt is the publishing industry. 
Time magazine recently revealed 
that the book industry relies on 
textbooks and children's books to 
support gambling loses on adult 
grade books. All the major pub- 
lishers, Time said, "print text and 
reference books, as well as child- 
ren's books, which are dependable 
money-makers. Their profitable 
textbook and paperback opera- 
tions enable them to gamble on 
adult trade books — which as a 
rule lose money." One publisher 
estimated that "60% of adult 
trade books end up in the red, 
another 36% break even, and 
only 4% turn a decent profit." 

Should students be forced to 
bear the brunt of the industry's 
losses and non-profits? Publishers 
are fully aware that they have the 
students over a barrel since stu- 
dents must buy particular requir- 
ed textbooks. 

There are two possible solu- 
tions to the dilemma. On a local 
level, student government could 
promote some type of competi- 
tive selling of new texts. We can 
buy everything from groceries 
to automobiles on a discounted 
basis; this opportunity should also 
be provided for students in the 
purchase of required books. 

On a wider level, the National 
Student Association could make 
the public and the publishing in-

Jos. Pace, owner of the Stu- 
dent Union beauty salon, brought 
prize-winning talent to the salon 
last week with his crew of hair- 

dressers Rae Phillips and Janice 

Working from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., 
the trio cut, styled and condi- 
tioned the tresses of almost 40 
coeds and faculty wives. 

Pace and his associates had

Texas Beauty Show in Dallas, 
where Miss Hanks had won first 
place in evening and artistic 
styling, using Miss Phillips as her

The Life and Times Of An 
Uninhibited American Swinger 

By Jim O'Quinn 

The Decline and Fall of the 
Enter World, you say? As Seen 
Through the Eyes of whom? 

Cole Porter is whom — that 
grand old American swinger who 
indellibly recorded the pomp 
and fervor of the first half of our 
century on a slate called Broad- 
way with chalk made out of 
rhythm and rhyme. 

And what a picture he drew! 
There was war, there were 
women, there was art and lack 
of art, there was Beatrice Lilly 
and Ethel Merman and vo-de-oh- 
do. There was Vaudeville, Depres- 
sion, Prohibition, Burlesque and 
frantic boredom. There was a lost 
generation, carrying its heroes 
on its shoulders. 

A singing, dancing troop of five 
performers revisited Cole Por- 
ter's world Tuesday evening, and 

Lenten Schedule

brought a night-full of uninhi- 
bited nostolgia to the Fine Arts 

Ben Bagley's three-year-old 
revue, fresh from an extended 
run off-Broadway and six months 
in London, utilized over 2,000 
color slides and musical hits and 
non-hits of Cole Porter to regis- 
ter an impudent, sophisticated, 
and ardently off-color reaction 
to Porter's life and times. 

"There'll Bo No More Sorrow 
Tomorrow," an old Sophie Tuc- 
ker song, epitomized the tone of 
jaded pseudo- optimism that per- 
vaded those years, and the co- 
ordinated confusion of dancers 
hoofing and puffing their way 
around comedienne Lois Zettler's 
characature of Mama Sophie was 
a patent image of unequalled 
hilarity. When Sophie pulled a 
tiny American flag from her 
bosom, she captured with a ges- 
ture all the glorious thunder and 
absurdity and abandon of an un- 
forgettable era.

to waste yourcollege education 
any more than you do. 

Are you afraid of becoming part 
of the woodwork on a job? Your 
career stunted by boredom? Few 
promotions in sight? 

You didn't go to college for that. 

And it needn't happen, either. 
Because you can pick the United 
States Air Force as your employer. 
Career opportunities are so vast. .. 
you'll get a better chance to spe- 
cialize where you want... in the 
forefront of modern science and 

Suppose, just for example, you 
wanted to be involved in Elec- 
tronics. This area alone includes 
Communications-Electronics, Mis- 
sile Electronics, Avionics, and 
others. And these, in turn, involve 
administrative, research, and other 
technical aspects. 

That's just a tiny part of the 
whole Air Force picture. Just 
one brilliant opportunity area 
among many. 

You'll enjoy good pay, promo- 
tions, chance to travel, active social 
life, fine retirement benefits. And 
you'll be serving your country, too. 

Or maybe you want to fly? That's 
great. The Air Force is certainly the 
place to do it. 

As a college graduate you want 
something extra out of life-to aim 
at an exciting goal. So send in

Ribicoff Proposes Bill In Senate To 
Reduce Taxes For College Patrons 

U.S. Senator Abraham Ribicoff 
(D-Conn) Monday introduced his 
bill in the Senate to give tax 
relief to parents and students 
who pay the costs of a college 

The proposal provides an in- 
come tax credit of up to $325 on 
the first $1,500 of tuition, fees, 
books, and supplies. It would go 
to anyone who pays these expens- 
es for a student at an institution 
of higher education. 

The measure this year has 

Library Grant 
Totals $2,000 

Louisiana State Library is offer- 
ing a $2,000 scholarship for grad- 
uate study leading to a Master's 
degree in Library Science. 

Announcement of this grant, 
which is included in this library's 
State Plan and is possible through 
funds available under the Federal 
Library Services and Construc- 
tion Act, is made by Miss Sallie 
Farrell, State Librarian. 

The recipient must be a citizen 
of the United States and resident 
of Louisiana or a neighboring 
state. He must hold a Bachelor's 
degree from a four-year college 
or university, and must have 
made application and received 
full admission to an ALA accred- 
ited library school, or must pre- 
sent a statement from the library 
school showing tentative admis- 
sion if still in progress toward a 
baccalaureate degree. Among 
these, he may attend the school 
of his choice. Upon completion 
of the degree, he will be expected 
to work for at least two years in 
a Louisiana public library. 

Information and application 
forms may be secured by writing 
to: Miss Sallie Farrell, State Li- 
brarian, Post Office Box 131,

Erwin To Head 
LSU Seminar 

Dr. W.G. Erwin, head of the 
Department of Biological Scien- 
ces, is the director of a three-day 
seminar in cell biology to be held 
on the LSU campus at Baton 
Rouge, March 16-18. 

The seminar is one of nine in 
the United States sponsored by 
the National Association of Biol- 
ogy Teachers. Financial support 
is provided by the National Sci- 
ence Foundation. 

The seminar at Baton Rouge is 
for high school biology teachers 
in Louisiana, Mississippi, Ala- 
bama, Georgia, Florida, and Puer- 
to Rica. The purpose of the sem- 
inar is to acquaint teachers with 
some of the recent developments 
in cell biology. Applications for 
participation in the seminar will 
be considered if received by Dr. 
Erwin by February 25.

picked up strong support; it is 
co-sponsored by 46 Senators from 
both political parties and from 
all sections of the country. 

It is the same as that Ribicoff 
has introduced in previous Con- 
gresses with one exception: An 
amendment would include cover- 
age for students in accredited 
technical and other vocational 

Senator Ribicoff pointed out 
that under his proposal over two- 
thirds of the benefits would go 
to families earning less than 
$10,000 a year. 

In a statement on the Senate 
floor, Senator Ribicoff said: 

"Now we must decide if, as a 
nation.we are to treat education 
costs as we do the interest on a 
home mortgage, or flood damage, 
or health expenses. This proposal 
is for the average family in 
America. It is for the people who 
constitute the backbone of Amer- 
ica the blue collar workers, 

the white collar workers, the 
wage earners and salaried per- 
sons of the lower and middle in- 
come group who are struggling 
to pay their bills, pay their hom- 
es, and educate their children. 
They work hard for their wages 
or salary and it is all taxable." 

Such tax relief is needed and 
will be needed, he explained, 
because the costs of going to 
college continue to increase. 
"Ben Franklin could experiment 
with a kite and key, but today's 
universities require atomic ac- 
celerators, mass spectrometers, 
and other sophisticated equip- 

Pay Scale Listed 
For Summer Jobs 

If your job pays $150 or $1,200 
plus room and board for approxi- 
mately two months this summer, 
you will be either low or high 
on the salary scale for the most 
plentiful jobs of the two leading 
summer employers, resorts and 

It is more likely, however, that 
your contact (if you are fortu- 
nate enough already to have one) 
calls for somewhere near $400 
plus room and board, the median 

These prevailing wages are 
from a study on summer jobs in 
seven selected states throughout 
the country, taken from 1967

offered by resorts, camps and 
many other employers throughout 
the United States and Canada are

From. Down Under— 

With Jay Keppel 

The ugly face of crowd dissention reared itself anew 
last week during the Northwestern-University of Southern 
Mississippi basketball game. 

The Demons apparently had come out of their slump as 
they dumped the visitors 102-99 in an exciting overtime 
victory. However, they were almost robbed of the win be- 
cause of their own supporters. Demon fans, angered by the 
officiating, began throwing trash and coins onto the court 
late in the second half. 

After doing this repeatedly, one of the officials threaten- 
ed to call a technical foul on the Demons. Considering that the 
best free-throw shooter on the USM squad would not conceiv- 
ably miss both of the foul shots, the final score would have 
read at least 96-95 in the favor of the Mississippians. 

Our basketball team has suffered more than its share of 
bad breaks, but if the team had lost this hard-earned win be- 
cause of their fans, it would have been pathetic. 

Luckily GSC Commissioner Stan Galloway was not in 
attendance this time. He was a spectator at the Southwestern 
game and "was not at all impressed" with what he saw. 

Tiger's Image 

The Northwestern image is rapidly degenerating into 
something akin to that of Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, 
at least as far as other GSC schools are concerned. 

It is this column's sincere hope that the student body 
of Northwestern learns to conduct itself in an orderly manner, 
especially in view of the national attention that will be focus- 
ed upon us shortly. 

,With both the National Association of Intercolligiate 
Athletics (NAIA) and the National Amateur Athletic Union 
(AAU) having chosen NSC as the site for their gymnastics 
meets (the NAIA to be televised by ABC), this kind of behavior 
could be damaging to our standing with the other conference 
schools, and could also limit our chances of bringing other 
national events to the Northwestern campus. 

Let's work to restore our old reputation as "the friend- 
liest college in the state." 

Peffer's Efforts 

The recent efforts of freshman James Peffer of Hemp- 
field, Pa., on the basketball court have been outstanding. 

Peffer earned a permanent starting assignment about 
mid-season, and has been producing ever since. He has been 
the sparkplug in more than one game with his ball-handling, 
play-making and shooting. He has proven of great value to 
the Demon hoopsters, and shows signs of becoming one of the 

greats in Northwestern basketball circles before he finishes 
his career.

Louisiana College in Prather Colsieum).

"N" Club Meet To Open Tonight; 
Thinclads to Vie in Indoor Fray 

By Bob Ardoin 

Sports fans who witness the

been measured at 6'9" in the high 
jump, and pole-vaulter Bob Man- 
ard of Tulane has cleared the bar 
at 15'3".

several individual clubs. One is 
the Houston Striders, who accord- 
ing to Walter Ledet, director of 
the meet, has many outstanding

World War I Ace Snooping Around for a New Car 


I'm a former World War I Air Ace, and when it comes to buy- 
ing a new car, I can really fly off the handle. Frankly, the whole 
thing is a dogfight for me. I'm tired of piloting my present car 
and have got my sights set on a performance model that'll let 
me strut in style. But its price has got to be solo it won't shoot 
me down. I'm banking on you to help me find one, Reb.

SGA Minutes 
February 20, 1967 

The regular meeting of the SGA was 
called to order by Milton Rhea, presi- 
dent. Minutes from the previous meet- 
ing were read and amended to add 
Kemp and Foster as ticket sellers from 
7:30-8:15 for the Mathis Show. Roll was 
called: absent — Margaret Cousins, 
Douglas Dalme, Suzanne Elliott, Danny 

President Rhea extended commend- 
ations to David Faraldo and the enter- 
tainment committee for the fine, well 
organized show of Johnny Mathis. 

Dean Fulton reported that the Rodeo 
Club had not approached him person- 
ally concerning use of the coliseum. 
The burning of Guardia Hall will pre- 
vent the possibility of a rodeo in the 
building this semester. 

Fulton announced that the students 
from St. Denis dining hall were moved 
to the new hall mostly due to financial 
reasons. Cuts in employment payroll 
and food losses were necessary. Also 
the other building will be needed for 
class meetings. Even with the student 
transfer, the capacity of 2700 lacks 
500 being reached. Maxwell read sev- 
eral "food improvements" presented to 
President Kyser in April, 1966. Max- 
well moved that Steve Prime and his 
committee meet to investigate the sit- 
uation. No second. Motion dead. Prime 
announced that the committee will 
meet to discuss the problems newly 

Newbury reported that numerous 
letters had been sent and answered by 
various state high schools cooperating 
with the SGA recruiting plans for NSC. 
He announced that Fulton had suggest- 
ed similar letters be sent to two-year 
colleges, hoping to gain their graduates. 

Fowler reported that the plaques for 
last season's football coaches and ap- 
preciation awards are ready for presen- 
tation at the half-time of the basketball 
game Feb. 28. 

Rhea presented a list of equipment 
requested by the Black Knights. Max- 
well moved that no more funds be 
granted due to the fact that so much 
had already been given and an apparent 
lack of actual "working" concern was 
present within the Knights. Seconded 
by Faraldo. Motion withdrawn after 
much discussion. 

Kenny Baker reported an outline of 
the next issue of the SGA Docket. The 
publication will be increased from 1500 
to 2000 in order to circulate more wide- 
ly, including SUSGA schools in Louis- 

Rhea presented a letter from the 
tennis team for two boys with a four- 
year letter in tennis wanting a blanket. 
Faraldo moved we give the blankets. 
Fowler seconded. Motion withdrawn as 
the constitution already covers the case. 

Louis Riehl reported that there are 
68 organizations with campus charters, 
53 of which are presently active. 

Daye reported that the Rock Found- 
ations had presented a contract to 
play at a college dance this Thurs. 
Maxwell moved that the SGA accept the 
contract. Seconded by Fowler. Motion 
carried. Daye announced that the AMS 
would take over the weekly dances if 
the SGA so agreed. General consensus 
was expressed. 

Knicely reported that he was disap- 
pointed with the past coverage of the 
Current Sauce concerning SGA affairs. 
He appealed to the staff to work with 
the SGA in promoting itself as an or- 
ganization with potential for top status 
on campus. Many additional comments 
were made by SGA representatives. 
Rhea reminded us of our Docket as a 
means of communicating our business 
to the student body. 

Branton moved that the meeting be 
adjourned. Seconded by Fowler. Meet- 
ing adjourned.

1500 points in game competition. 

Clark tallied a total of 17 points 
in the losing effort against Cen- 
tenary at Shreveport. He needed 
only four markers coming into 
the contest to crack the coveted 
1500-point barrier. 

A quick field goal and free 
throw set the stage for the clinch- 
er, which came with 13:40 left in 
the first half. Another free throw 
gave Clark his fourth point. 

In landing his fifteenth-hund- 
redth tally, Clark joined Demon 
greats Dick Brown, Red Leach, 
and Claude Stoutamire in the se-

The 83-75 loss to Centenary was 
a tough one for the Demons after 
their past two performances. Re- 
peatedly plagued by fouls and 
turnovers, the Northwestern team 
never seemed to "get going" after 
starting out with the first four 
straight points in the game.

Northwestern won its second 
consecutive game Monday night 
by whipping the McNeese Cow- 
boys convincingly 74-64, in Lake 
Charles. Sophomore center James 
Wyatt led the team to the vic-

the strongest in his class. 

In weight lifting there are three 
events, the bench press, the full 
squat, and the dead lift. In de- 
ciding the winner of a particular 
weight class, the judge totals the 
number of pounds lifted in all 
three events. 

In the 132pound class, Robert 
Carreiro placed first with a total 
lift of 785 pounds. 

The 148 pound division found 
Cesar Sosa winning with 915 
pounds, and Bill Lizotte in the 
165 pound class, winning with 
1015 pounds.

The top three teams in each 
league and their records are: 
"Other Nine," 4-0; "West Cas- 
pari," 5-1 and "PEK," 5-1. These 
standings are in league "A." 

In "B" "White Trash" is lead- 
ing with 7-0. Close behind, how- 
ever, are Sigma Tau Gamma and 
the "Untouchables," both sport- 
ing records of 6-1. 

Richie Jackson won his weight 
class, 181 pounds, with a lift of 
1085 pounds. In the next class, 
198 pounds, Butch Summerlin

Future SGA Plans 
Include Demon Bus 

ITS NOT EVERYDAY that one sees a lady barber, much less two, but this loas the case last week 
in the Student Union barber shop when KA rose, Patsy Lee, and her assistant, Linda Anthony, gave 
KA's Jere Daye and Willie Ward, their last shave until after KA's Old South weekend. May 3-5. 
Most KA's like Ward and Daye, are growing beards for the OLD South festivities. 

By Helen Sullivan, 
SGA Reporter 

The Student Government As- 
sociation discussed plans for the 
future Monday night, and referr- 
ed several projects, including a 
high school Career Day, an SGA- 
sponsored Demon Bus, and cafe- 
teria improvements, to commit- 

As part of a high school re- 
cruiting program, proposals were 
made to send four volunteer 
speakers to area high schools to 
speak about academic and social 
opportunities at the college. 

A committee headed by Junior 
Men's Representative Dennis New- 
bury has completed a schedule of 
high school recruiting visits., and 
has under advisement plans for a 
Career Day, instigated so that 
high school juniors and seniors 
could actually become familiar 
with the campus before gradua- 

Plans for a Demon Bus to trans- 
port students from the new dorms 
to strategic spots on campus were 
presented by Student Body Vice- 
President David Faraldo. This 
service to the students could be 
provided at an estimated cost of 
$12,000, Faraldo said. 

Senior Class President Jerry 

Kemp asserted that the comple- 
tion of the new Arts and Sciences 
classroom building will tend to 
"centralize the campus," and that 
this "expensive imitation of 
LSU's Tiger Train" would then 
be pointless. Kemp cast the single 
dissenting vote against consider- 
ation of the project by a commit- 

Complaints against the cafeter- 
ia were aired again Monday night, 
including poorly-washed silver- 
ware, improperly cooked meat, 
and slow service. The Student 
Services Committee, headed by 
Steve Prime, reported that these 
problems were being checked 
into, and forwarded a plan to 
place suggestion boxes in the 
cafeteria and student center, the 
old ones having been removed. 

Recent problems with Natchit- 
oches Dorm parking were also 
discussed. Kemp reported that a 
letter prepared by Dean Nichols 
will be issued within the next few 
days concerning the situation, 
and that it is expected that all of 
Lot 19 will be used for the app- 
roximately 90 cars of Natchit- 
oches residents. North Hall ve- 
hicles and the overflow from the 
Bossier Hall lot will be moved to 
the lot behind South Hall.

Aftermath Of A Crisis 

To the Editor: 

Since the fire which destroyed 
Guardia Hall, I have been most 
heartened by the words of en- 
couragement and offers of assist- 
ance which have been received by 
letter and telephone. They have 
come from all parts of the state 
and from students, alumni, col- 
leagues, and friends. The admin- 
istration and staff of the college 
also have and are doing their 
best to meet our many needs at 
this time. 

The particular purpose of this 
letter is to acknowledge the splen- 
did response of the NSC student 

Placement Office 
Sets Interviews 

Job interviews for students in 
a variety of major fields of study 
will be held this week in the 
Placement Office, Room 223 in 
the Student Union. 

R.A. Garinger, representing the 
Boeing Aircraft Co., will inter- 
view students majoring in indus- 
trial arts, electronics, mathema- 
tics and physics Monday. 

A representative from the Boy 
Scouts of America will be in the 
Placement Office Tuesday to in- 
terview all persons interested in 
working with the organization. 

St. Mary Parish Schools will be 
represented by Harry Hover Sr. 
Tuesday for interviews with pros- 
pective teachers. 

Representatives from Dunn and 
Bradstreet will be in the office 
Wednesday to interview students 
majoring in liberal arts, business 
administration, and journalism. 

Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co. will

body to our predicament. They 
have rallied to our assistance 
in every way open to them and 
have given us their fullest co- 
operation and understanding. 
They thought of ways to be help- 
ful before we had recovered 
enough to think of them our- 
selves. And they did all of this 
without waiting to be asked. I 
am sure I speak of all of the 
social sciences faculty as well as 
myself in this effort to say "thank 
you" in a small way. 

The student body of any col- 
lege always plays a major role 
in determining the effectiveness 
with which the academic depart- 
ments can function. In the situa- 
tion in which we presently find 
ourselves, this fact is magnified 
at least a hundred fold, and the 
student body has risen to the oc- 
casion. They have given us more 
than assurances of passive good 
will — they have given us evidence 
of active support and cooperation. 

Since the students who have 
come forward are too numerous 
to name individually or to con- 
tact in person, I shall welcome 
your assistance in making our 
appreciation known to them.

Dept. of Social Sciences

were passed around to all resi- 
dents of Natchitoches Hall in- 
forming or reminding them that 
they are "requested" not to use 
the part of parking lot 19 between 
St. Denis and Caddo Hall. I would 
like to ask the administration 
where the cars registered in the 
already overcrowded lot will be 
allowed to park so that they will 
not be given a ticket? Certainly 
some area must be designated to 
prevent a large number of unjust 
tickets being given, or is this the

vehicles from lot 19 should be

fice and in front of the Stadium. 
In case this lot is full, and in case 
you feel like hiking, space is avail-

illegally. Like the poet I ponder-

by Francis Hemming, C. M. G., 
C. B. E., and secretary to the In-

Nothing was quite so curious 
as Sex, Symbolism and Psycho- 
logy in Literature (801 B295), a 
charming little volume with a de- 
dication reading "To my mother." 

Eventually my eyes began to 
tire, and my head, glutted with 
new knowledge and enviable eru- 
rition, began to reel. I checked 
out one book — Memoirs of Extra- 
ordinary Popular Delusions and 
the Madness of Crowds by Charles 
Mackay, LL. D., with a foreword 
by Bernard Baruch — and left the 
library confidant in the know- 
lege that profound intellectual 
stimulation is at hand for those 
who seek it.
